About Equitrans

Our Corporate Sustainability Framework

As our Core Values define who we are as a company, our corporate sustainability framework incorporates these values into its five pillars to define our approach to sustainability.

Five Pillars of Sustainability

Our five pillars are designed to enable Equitrans to deliver long-term, sustainable value to all of our stakeholders.

Safety Leadership

First and foremost of our corporate sustainability pillars, Safety Leadership is always our top priority—above all else. For Equitrans, the safety and well-being of our employees, contractors, and community members takes precedence and the execution of our business strategy is not successful unless Zero is Possible. We staunchly believe that workplace injuries are preventable. Everyone at Equitrans has a collective responsibility to exhibit safety leadership to realize success and, most importantly, create a workplace where Zero is Possible.

Environmental Stewardship

The conservation of the natural environments in which we operate is critically important to Equitrans. We strive to meet or exceed regulatory requirements. To accomplish this, we work to continuously improve through various initiatives and the incorporation of sustainable practices such as utilizing innovative technologies to enhance our emissions reduction program and optimizing our natural resource use.

Corporate Governance

Our commitment to upholding transparent corporate governance principles is shared by our highest governance body, the Board of Directors of Equitrans, which is responsible for overseeing the management of our business activities and affairs. The Board’s Health, Safety, Security and Environmental committee provides oversight in respect of our sustainability initiatives.

Economic Impact

Equitrans delivers clean, affordable domestic energy; supports economic development in local communities; creates jobs; and generates tax revenue to support state and local governments, all of which positively contribute to the U.S. economy and local economies. We engage with the communities where we operate to understand the issues they face, develop solutions that support them, and pursue new opportunities to contribute to economic growth.

Stakeholder Engagement

Our stakeholders provide respected insight into the operations of our business. We believe that sustaining an open, transparent, and honest dialogue with our diverse group of stakeholders enables Equitrans to better identify process gaps and implement strategies to swiftly address matters of concern.

Highlight Story
Southpointe Office
Safety Committee

Recently, the Office Safety Committee at our Southpointe office in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania worked to create a safer office environment and ensure Zero Is Possible. Utilizing input from employees, the team introduced several office safety enhancements focused on two key areas: Emergency Awareness and Slips, Trips, and Falls. To raise emergency awareness throughout the office, the team implemented active shooter trainings, a floor warden program, and CPR and first aid certifications, while also organizing fire drills. The team took steps to reduce slip, trip, and fall risks by installing ice warning indicators and safety mats at entrance points, placing umbrella bags at doors, and installing shadings on office and conference room windows. In addition to these safety measures, the team set up safety suggestion boxes on each Southpointe office floor where employees can submit safety ideas. We are working to expand these office safety committees to our field offices and have already met with employees in our Waynesburg, Pennsylvania and Clarksburg, West Virginia locations to discuss the development of their own Office Safety Committee.
