If you’re going to talk the talk, you need to walk the walk.
It’s been just over a year since Enbridge committed to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2050.
With significant emissions reductions already achieved through equipment modernization, regional power grid greening, and solar self-power, we’re making early progress toward that 2050 goal, as well as our interim target of reducing GHG emissions intensity from our operations 35% by 2030.
Our commitment—and our actions—continue to garner positive attention from sustainability ratings agencies.
In recent weeks, Enbridge was recognized again among midstream energy leaders, including:
“We’re committed to building a bridge to a cleaner energy future, and one of the pillars is strong ESG leadership,” says Pete Sheffield, Enbridge’s Chief Sustainability Officer and vice president of U.S. external affairs. “The efforts of Enbridge employees across the company directly shape how we’re positioned on ESG, so it’s great to see continued external recognition for how Team Enbridge lives our values each and every day.”
Enbridge’s program of modernization in our gas transmission business includes a robust upgrade in technology—replacing our existing gas compressors with newer, lower-emission units across the U.S., along with reduced venting and methane abatement activity.
We’re also advancing our solar self-power program, generating low-emissions electricity to support our liquids pipelines and gas transmission pipeline operations. To date, we’ve announced 13 solar projects that will collectively generate more than 110 megawatts of clean energy, from Wisconsin to Alberta, Kentucky to Minnesota. Three of these projects are already operational.
At Enbridge, our name spells out our mission: a bridge to a sustainable energy future. That bridge safely connects millions of people around the world to the energy they rely on every day, fueling quality of life. Whether it’s natural gas, oil or renewable power, the energy we deliver through networks spanning North America and our growing European offshore wind portfolio helps to heat homes, feed families, fuel vehicles and power industry. We’re investing in modern energy infrastructure to sustain access to secure, affordable energy. We’re also building on two decades of experience in renewable energy to advance new low-carbon energy technologies including hydrogen, renewable natural gas and carbon capture and storage. We’re committed to reducing the carbon footprint of the energy we deliver, and to achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
