This Pembina Institute and WWF-Canada report is the most comprehensive comparative assessment of 10 of Alberta's operating, approved or applied for oilsands mines. The first of its kind, this report finds that for the most part oilsands mines get a failing grade.

Oilsands mines were ranked on 20 different environmental indicators in five categories: environmental management, land impacts, air pollution, water use, and management of greenhouse gases.
