Bridge to a Cleaner Energy Future: Enbridge's 2021 Sustainability Report

Enbridge Inc. published its 21st annual Sustainability Report, offering stakeholders information about the Company's continuous improvement in areas of environment, social, and governance (ESG) performance.

The Report provides for the first time, in accordance with the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosure, a net-zero scenario analysis to test the resiliency of Enbridge's business against holding global warming to 1.5C above preindustrial levels. This important evaluation validates Enbridge's diversified energy mix, early entry into lower-emission investments, and financial strength, which create strategic optionality that positions Enbridge to be resilient under any scenario.

  • Goal: Reduce GHG emissions intensity 35 per cent by 2030: Progress: Reduced emissions intensity by 27 per cent from a 2018 baseline, including a two per cent reduction in 2021.
  • Goal: Net-zero GHG emissions by 2050. Progress: 20 per cent reduction in absolute greenhouse gas emissions through 2021 from a 2018 baseline.
