About Pure Environmental

Leadership

Pure is driven by the deep roots established in the energy sector waste management industry by its Chairman David (Dave) Werklund. Dave is an acclaimed Canadian entrepreneur, the pioneer who developed the Canadian oilfield waste management industry, an energy services industry leader, and dedicated philanthropist. In 1984, he established the first oilfield waste management company (CCS) in Alberta and grew that organization into a $3.7 billion dollar enterprise by 2007. This company, and the many others Mr. Werklund has established, led to him receiving the Ernst & Young’s Canadian Entrepreneur of the Year in 2005. Mr. Werklund was inducted as a Member of the Order of Canada in 2018.

Mr. Werklund believes in surrounding himself with talented, progressive individuals, as evidenced by the leadership team he has assembled at Pure.
