Our role in society
Energy heats homes. It cooks food. It powers industry. It empowers society. It helps build and shape the world around us.
At Enbridge, we deliver the energy that fuels quality of life.
Enbridge is North America’s premier energy infrastructure company. Our name spells out our mission: a bridge to a cleaner energy future. That bridge safely connects millions of people around the world to the energy they rely on every day through our four core businesses—liquids pipelines, natural gas pipelines, gas utilities and storage, and renewable energy.
Throughout our history, and especially today, we are looking beyond the horizon to invest in and build modern infrastructure, resilient communities and reliable energy. We’ve evolved to meet growing global energy needs—delivering the energy mix of today and tomorrow, and helping to meet those needs in ways that are ethical, sustainable and socially responsible.
We’re building on two decades of renewables experience 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 emissions by 2050.
The work we do creates well-paying jobs in towns and cities. It generates tax revenue to build schools, hospitals and roads. It stimulates local economies. It provides grants and volunteer labor that strengthen communities.
Headquartered in Calgary, Canada, with major offices in Houston, Duluth, Edmonton, Toronto and Chatham, our more than 12,000-person team brings enthusiasm and ingenuity to work every day in support of this mission.
Our sustainability goals
Sustainability is integral to our ability to safely and reliably deliver the energy people need and want. How well we perform as a steward of our environment, a safe operator of essential energy infrastructure, and a diverse employer is directly linked to our success.
Our environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals represent the next stage of our evolution as an ESG leader to ensure we’re positioned to grow sustainably in the coming decades.
Enbridge’s 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 a 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
Enbridge and North America's energy value chain
Although we don’t participate in every stage, Enbridge plays multiple key roles in the continental energy value chain, including transmission, storage, gas distribution and renewable power generation. The energy we move helps to heat homes, feed families, fuel vehicles, power industry and benefit society in thousands of ways.
