Strong values guide the way we make decisions and conduct our business.

Enbridge’s core values form an integral part of our daily activities. They have helped sustain our success for many years and continue to guide us as we deliver the energy North Americans need—safely, reliably and efficiently.


We operate with integrity, honesty and transparency, and to the highest ethical standards.


We are accountable for our actions— as individuals and as an organization.

Innovation and Flexibility

We embrace innovation and learning. We are flexible, open to change and create new solutions for new challenges.

Value Creation

We strive to create value and to deliver a prosperous future through growth in the enterprise and excellence in customer service.

Social Responsibility

We are committed to sustaining safety for our employees and the public, a clean and healthy environment and strong and vibrant communities through socially responsible operations.


VIRDEN, MB The Wallace District Fire Department serving the Town of Virden has benefited from Enbridge’s Safe Community program, through which we provide financial support to hundreds of first-response organizations across North America. They use the funds to acquire equipment, obtain training or deliver educational programs. Ensuring the safety of the communities in which we operate is one of our core values.

We hold ourselves to the highest standards of openness and care.

We strive to be a good neighbour in all the communities where we operate. In July 2010, when we experienced the most serious environmental incident in our long history—the leak of approximately 20,000 barrels of oil on our Line 6B pipeline near Marshall, Michigan—we immediately accepted responsibility and made a clear commitment to local residents: to clean up the spill and address the impacts on the environment and to the people of Marshall, Battle Creek and area. We are determined at all times to meet our responsibilities, and live up to and exceed the expectations of our stakeholders.


MARSHALL, MI Within hours of a major leak being discovered on our Line 6B pipeline near Marshall in July 2010, Enbridge’s President & CEO Pat Daniel (right) and Stephen Wuori, President, Liquids Pipelines, relocated to Marshall for over two months to personally oversee our cleanup efforts and address the concerns of local residents. At the height of our response, we had up to 2,500 employees and contractors working on cleanup and remediation. Line 6B was safely returned to service in September 2010.

CSR is integral to how we operate.

Enbridge exists to deliver the energy North Americans needcrude oil, natural gas, environmentally responsible power—safely, reliably and efficiently. That is our primary corporate social responsibility (CSR).

CSR is also about ensuring our financial strength, conducting our business in an environmentally sustainable manner and maintaining our social license to operate.

CSR is integral to the way we operate and is at the heart of our success.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN HOUSE, AB Through our Neutral Footprint initiative, we have committed to planting a tree for every tree we remove, conserving an acre of natural habitat for every acre we permanently impact, and generating a kilowatt of renewable energy for every kilowatt of power our operations consume.
