Our Approach

At Trans Mountain, we are committed to managing environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters responsibly, and being transparent about our practices and performance. The goal of our ESG report is to communicate the environmental, social and governance initiatives and key metrics that demonstrate our progress to date and our commitment to continual improvement.

Our respect for Indigenous communities is woven into the fabric of our company and embedded in our environmental, social and governance activities.


Our transportation services have a comparatively low greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint and we can help our customers compete in markets that are increasingly focused on striving to meet decarbonization goals. Our pipeline crosses some of the most rugged, mountainous terrain in the world as well as wetlands, waterways, parkland, and urban areas. While we operate in a challenging environment, our pipeline has delivered safe and reliable energy transportation for almost 70 years. We take great care to respect the traditional use of the land and Indigenous heritage resources. During the Expansion Project activities, our goal is to minimize our impact on the environment and to offset remaining impacts on the climate, wetlands and biodiversity.


We respect the communities where we operate and work hard to build and maintain these relationships. We operate in a manner consistent with Canada’s commitment to advance reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples. Whether it is through the course of our daily operations or during construction, we are committed to operating safely and responsibly to protect our employees, contractors and the public. We also foster a positive, inclusive and diverse work environment.


Our Board of Directors and leadership team work to set a positive example for all employees and contractors by demonstrating our corporate values—Safety, Integrity, Respect and Excellence. Our policies and practices establish clear expectations and foster accountability at all levels of the organization. Our training gives employees the necessary tools to meet the commitments contained in our policies. Our decisions consider the long-term vision for our company and incorporate environmental and social factors. As societal expectations of corporations evolve, we remain attuned to shifts in risks and opportunities, and adjust our business practices accordingly.
