Discussion of long-term and short-term strategy or plan to manage Scope 1 emissions, emissions reduction targets, and an analysis of performance against those targets

Air Emissions & Climate Change

Air Quality


Air emissions of the following pollutants: (1) NOx (excluding N2O), (2) SOx, (3) volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and (4) particulate matter (PM10)


Air Emissions & Climate Change

Ecological Impacts

Description of environmental management policies and practices for active operations


Percentage of land owned, leased, and/or operated within areas of protected conservation status or endangered species habitat

Equitrans’ primary operations are located across the Appalachian Basin and due to this region's native habitat, all operating areas are within range of endangered bat species. Equitrans implements all required guidelines for protecting these conservation areas, as well as other endangered species habitats.

Terrestrial acreage disturbed, percentage of impacted area restored


Number and aggregate volume of hydrocarbon spills, volume in Arctic, volume in Unusually Sensitive Areas (USAs), and volume recovered

Equitrans had one leak in an unusually sensitive area in 2019. The volume of this leak was not quantified. The remaining metrics are not applicable to Equitrans because Equitrans does not operate in the Arctic.

Competitive Behavior

Total amount of monetary losses as a result of legal proceedings associated with federal pipeline and storage regulations

Zero losses

Operational Safety, Emergency Preparedness & Response


Number of reportable pipeline incidents, percentage significant


Percentage of (1) natural gas and (2) hazardous liquid pipelines inspected

Number of (1) accident releases and (2) nonaccident releases (NARs) from rail transportation
Equitrans does not operate nor contract rail transportation.
Discussion of management systems used to integrate a culture of safety and emergency preparedness throughout the value chain and throughout project lifecycles

Activity Metric


Total metric ton-kilometers of: (1) natural gas, (2) crude oil, and (3) refined petroleum products transported, by mode of transport
