Our Year in Review
During the past year at Equitrans Midstream Corporation, we have continued on our journey to be a premier, top-tier midstream energy company. We are proud to pursue energy solutions that meet customer demands, create value for our shareholders, and support our many stakeholders. Our principal assets located throughout the prolific Appalachian Basin in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia, along with growth projects, distinctively position us to meet the growing energy demands of the United States.
Through our Corporate Sustainability Report, we outline the important work we do to ensure our operations are safe, sustainable, and responsible. We are pleased to present our first report in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and also to incorporate the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) Oil & Gas Industry Standard. Our report reflects the results of our first materiality assessment, which we conducted in 2019 to identify the Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) topics most significant to our business and our stakeholders. Our progress this year includes the appointment of Todd L. Normane to the new position of Chief Sustainability Officer, which will further strengthen our approach to sustainability as we continue to responsibly manage the impacts of our activities.
Our ESG management practices are intrinsic and deliver value that goes beyond financial drivers. Today and in the future, trust and transparency are central to our approach. As companies’ sustainability practices evolve, our global society continues to highlight the importance of stakeholder trust in businesses and the role that transparency plays in establishing and maintaining strong relationships. This report is an important reflection of our accomplishments, commitments, and future endeavors.
We conduct business to a standard that is consistent with our five core values of Safety, Integrity, Collaboration, Transparency, and Excellence. These five core values are reflected in key components of our ESG approach, including:
- Our work towards instilling a “Zero is Possible, Today” safety culture
- Our commitment to being a trusted business partner and neighbor
- Our partnerships with community organizations
- Our pursuit of reducing our greenhouse gas and air emissions
We are pleased to share our ESG approach and actions with our employees, customers, shareholders, suppliers, communities, and all other stakeholders. As we navigate the uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we are proud to continue safely and responsibly moving America’s critical energy resources during these unprecedented times. We hope that by reading our report, you will see our vision for building a safe and secure future together.
