Directed by its social vision statement, Enbridge in 2011 helped build communities across its operating regions in Canada and the U.S. that are sustainable, with solid infrastructure and programming in the company’s six focus areas:
- Lifelong Learning
- Community Leadership
- Natural Legacy
- Arts & Culture
- School Plus
- Safe Community
By investing in each of these key areas with its dollars, partnerships and human capital, Enbridge is able to support organizations that contribute to the economic and social development of communities near the company’s operations. Enbridge believes these investments are essential to being a good neighbour and are a contributing factor in maintaining the company’s social license to operate.Please see below for more details on the six focus areas.
Enbridge partners with charitable and non-profit organizations in its various geographic regions in Canada and the U.S. that have the skills and expertise to effect change. The criteria and guidelines for Enbridge’s Community Partnerships & Investments Program are outlined under the heading ‘Policy’ of this Society section.
In the year ended December 31, 2011, Enbridge’s actual enterprise-wide Community Investment expenditure totaled $13 million, which the company invested in more than 550 charitable, non-profit, and community organizations. This investment amount is growing with corporate earnings, and represents over one per cent of Enbridge’s profits.
