Continuing our path to reconciliation

We are at a pivotal moment in history—an awakening—to reset and build a foundational relationship. There is a shifting of awareness to Indigenous history, culture, rights, engagement and inclusion occurring across North America.

At Enbridge, we believe we can, and should, be a leader in our industry in Indigenous engagement, inclusion, and awareness—because we have learned we can go further together.

In September 2022, we released our Indigenous Reconciliation Action Plan (IRAP), which continues our long-held commitment to strengthening relationships with Indigenous communities across North America and advancing reconciliation. An important next step, it allows us to track and report on our progress against tangible commitments.

Broadband access opens doors to learning

In the Minnesota communities of Mahnomen, Waubun and Ogema, internet access can be spotty at best. That’s all changing with a $366,000 Enbridge grant to the Mahnomen and Waubun-Ogema-White Earth school districts to provide broadband access for 1,400 students. “Broadband service really is granting access to equitable learning. It’s very important,” notes Lisa, superintendent of the Waubun-Ogema-White Earth district.

Community engagement: It's the energy we put in

At Enbridge, our values of safety, integrity, respect and inclusion are central to how we do business. By living our values, we can enrich communities, advance Indigenous reconciliation, and build bridges to a more inclusive and prosperous future.

Meet Daniel, a proud Native American pipeliner

Daniel worked as an apprentice inspector on the North Dakota segment of Enbridge’s Line 3 Replacement Project. “I wish people would take the time to understand what happens out here,” he says. “Being Native American, I feel obligated to make sure this pipeline is built safely.”

Our commitment to the environment
Safety of people, and protection of the environment, is our top priority. Whether we’re planning, building, maintaining or operating a pipeline, we take special care to minimize our impact on the surrounding environment.

From wildlife protection strategies, to Horizontal Directional Drilling, to using pre-existing corridors of activity, to habitat restoration, we work hard to minimize our long-term impact to land along our pipeline routes.

Sustainability at Enbridge
Sustainability is central to everything we do. Across our business, we’ve committed to net-zero GHG emissions by the year 2050—and reducing our emissions intensity 35% by 2030.

As a leader in North American energy infrastructure, we have an important role to play in providing access to cleaner energy. That role involves contributing to greenhouse gas emission reductions goals and seeking new and improved ways to deliver energy safely, responsibly and sustainably.
