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