Phillips, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Crestwood’s general partner. “Crestwood continues to be an ESG thought leader in the midstream sector, and we have helped advance the standardization of ESG metrics across the industry in an effort to attract new investors as commodity prices begin to support increasingly favorable energy sector dynamics.

The updated sustainability strategy will reflect the ever-changing environment that we operate in while continuing to mitigate ESG risks and seek opportunities that will propel our success in the future.”
