Reconciliation Energy Transition Inc. (“RETI”) and Sumitomo Corporation of Americas, a subsidiary of Sumitomo Corporation, (together “Sumitomo”) (collectively the “Parties”) are pleased to announce they have entered into an agreement whereby RETI has granted to Sumitomo the exclusive right to acquire a significant equity interest in the East Calgary Carbon Transportation & Sequestration Project (the “CTS Hub”).

This partnership, with our commitment to Indigenous ownership, is a pivotal step to bring the CTS project to fruition.” said Stephen Mason, Chairman & CEO of RETI.

“We are delighted to partner with RETI and its commitment to meaningful Indigenous ownership on the development of the CTS Hub. The mitigation of climate change is one of our key areas of focus and we recognize that CCUS is a key technology in that battle,” said Shinichi “Sandro” Hasegawa, General Manager of Energy Innovation Initiative Americas at Sumitomo Corporation of Americas.
