Read about our approach and performance on key environmental, economic and social issues of interest to investors.
The term “ESG” may be new, but Enbridge’s commitment to strong environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices and performance has long been core to how we do business, and we’re proud to be recognized as a leader among our peers. Our new commitments represent the next stage of our evolution to ensure we are positioned to grow Enbridge sustainably for many decades to come.
Enbridge’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals include:
- Net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050; with an interim target to reduce GHG emissions intensity 35% by 2030
- Increased representation* of diverse groups within our workforce by 2025 including an aspirational goal of 28% from Racial and Ethnic groups, along with new initiatives to enhance supplier diversity
- Strengthening diversity on our Board with a goal of 40% representation of women and 20% of Racial and Ethnic groups by 2025
- Annual safety and reliability targets that drive continuous improvement towards our goal of zero incidents, injuries and occupational injuries, and implementation of robust cyber defense programs
Our success in executing on our strategic priorities is very much enabled by our commitment to ESG issues, the quality and capabilities of our people and the extent to which we embrace technology and encourage innovation as a competitive advantage.
Long ago, we began integrating ESG principles into our strategy and decision-making, and today ESG is core to our long-term value and resilience.
To drive results and accountability, Enbridge will expand links to incentive compensation to performance on emissions reduction and diversity, complementing safety metrics already embedded.* With regard to diversity, the word “targets” and any percentage targets listed are aspirational goals which we intend to achieve in a manner compliant with state, local, provincial and federal law, including but not limited to U.S. federal regulations and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Department of Labor (DOL) and Office of Federal Contract Programs (OFCCP) guidance.
