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
Equitrans Opposes
Federal Rollback of
Methane Regulations

In September 2019, Equitrans publicly announced its support for the continuation of natural gas industry efforts to reduce methane emissions in light of a proposed rollback of regulations by the EPA. The rollback would affect 40 CFR Part 60 Subparts OOOO and OOOOa by removing methane sources in transmission and storage segments from regulation. Equitrans recognizes the great strides the natural gas industry has made in reducing methane emissions recently and as Diana Charletta, president and chief operating officer of Equitrans, stated “We believe methane controls and reductions should continue to evolve, rather than take steps backward.” We acknowledge that simply achieving regulatory compliance on methane emissions is not enough in order to address the global impacts of climate change. However, by proactively implementing best practices for methane emissions and reducing our overall carbon footprint, we can make a difference in the sustainability of our environment, communities, and business.
