·3 min read

Northampton, MA --News Direct-- Enbridge

Anchored to our purpose, vision and values, Enbridge’s strategic plan is our roadmap to the future. The plan identifies what we need to focus on to advance our business and ensure that Enbridge remains competitively positioned for the long term.

Our success in executing our strategic plan is enabled by the quality and capabilities of our people, the extent to which we embrace technology and encourage innovation, and our approach to sustainability. To

this end, we set ambitious ESG goals in 2020, which strengthen accountability and reinforce our commitments to reducing GHG emissions, building an inclusive workforce that reflects our communities, and increasing transparency of our ESG priorities and results.

EmissionsWe are committing to take action on climate change by reducing our GHG emissions and advancing the energy transition.

"CBSR is proud of our longstanding relationship with Enbridge—a company focused on corporate responsibility and improving its sustainability performance. In 2020, Enbridge underscored this commitment by linking its ambitious new ESG goals to incentive compensation across the organization. We would love to see more companies follow this leadership example."Leor RotchildExecutive DirectorCanadian Business for Social Responsibility (CBSR)

Performance mattersWe know that setting sustainability goals is not enough—performance is what counts. That’s why we have linked performance on emissions reduction and diversity to incentive compensation, along with the safety metrics that are already included. Starting in 2021, all Enbridge employees will have line-of-sight to achievement of our ESG goals through objectives set out in their annual scorecards. Progress will be shared publicly through our annual sustainability report.

In February 2021, we launched a three-year, $1-billion sustainability-linked credit facility— the first of its kind in our sector—aligning our sustainability performance with funding costs. The facility includes terms that allow us to reduce borrowing costs if we achieve an interim threshold on our ESG goals.
