The world needs responsibly produced energy, and Plains is doing our part to fill those needs by moving a significant portion of North America’s energy resources each day.

We take seriously our responsibility to reliably transport these resources in a manner that maintains the safety of employees, contractors, local communities and the environment, and to conduct our business in an ethical manner.

Our Approach to Sustainability

Our approach to sustainability is rooted in our company Values of Safety and Environmental Stewardship, Accountability, Ethics and Integrity, and Respect and Fairness. We believe continuous improvement of the practices guiding how we manage our environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance is not only good business, but it’s the right thing to do.

Our sustainability strategy is centered on three objectives:

  • Building long-term relationships of trust among stakeholders
  • Managing operating and business risks and minimizing environmental impacts
  • Leveraging our people, assets and systems to maximize long-term value
