Safety, Environmental & Social Responsibility


At Enterprise, safety is our top priority and is at the core of our value system. We promote a culture in which all personnel share the same commitment to health and safety excellence and recognize that this requires personal involvement at all levels of management. At Enterprise, we recognize that safety breeds reliability and we have established a solid record of protecting our people, the environment and the communities in which we operate. All of our personnel are expected to adopt, embrace, promote and follow these basic principles:

Assisting areas of Safety

We work together and look out for each other’s safety to successfully meet our goals.

In support of that mission, we promote a culture in which all employees are committed to applying these principles to every task, every day and every time.

Environmental Stewardship

At Enterprise, we believe that environmental stewardship is the responsibility of each employee, starting at the top. This commitment is not only a moral obligation, but also makes good business sense, and helps drive the success of our projects and operations company-wide. In addition to playing an integral role in the long-term growth of our company, protecting the environment is also important to our business partners and the communities in which our personnel (including employees of our affiliates, independent contractors and other service providers) live and work. We want our neighbors to know that protection of the environment is a priority and we continuously evaluate and strive to reduce environmental risks, which can affect our business and the community. We have implemented system-wide programs to mitigate this risk and help ensure compliance with federal, state and local rules and regulations.

Our Environmental Stewardship Principles

These diligent efforts to reduce environmental impact lead to indirect benefits such as providing more flexibility in expanding our operations in a cost-effective manner to meet customer needs.

Public Awareness / Pipeline Safety

Public awareness and pipeline safety are paramount to the safe operation of our pipelines. Enterprise participates in numerous outreach efforts targeted at various stakeholder audiences to increase awareness about the importance of the, “811…Call Before You Dig” message, including our participation in collaborative sponsorships through the Common Ground Alliance. Below are some of the areas where our efforts take place to help us achieve this goal.
