Cenovus

As Manager, Technology Development, Craig Stenhouse is responsible for representing Cenovus at Canada’s Oil Sands Innovation Alliance (COSIA), an alliance of oil sands producers focused on accelerating the pace of improvement in environmental performance through collaborative action and innovation. The guiding principle for COSIA is that all members will have greater success by collaborating on environmental innovation than through our individual efforts.

His career over the past 15 years has focused on advancing the environmental and socio-economic performance of extractive industry companies. He has also developed executive training programs to address the role of business with respect to human rights.

Craig has provided strategic advice to a number of international companies, including Nexen, Canadian Natural Resources, Talisman Energy, Encana Corporation, ConocoPhillips Canada, Cameco, Marks & Spencer, Premier Oil, De Beers Diamond Trading Company, DHL and British American Tobacco. Craig holds a Master of Science degree from the London School of Economics and Political Science.
