Enbridge delivers more than the energy you count on. We deliver on our promise to help make communities better places to live. It's part of the reason we were named one of the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World.
Through this social vision statement, Enbridge helps build communities across our operating regions in Canada and the U.S. that are sustainable, with solid infrastructure and programming in our six focus areas. In 2011, Enbridge invested $13 million in charitable, non-profit and community organizations, benefiting more than 550 organizations in Canada and the United States.
As part of our engagement strategy, Enbridge aims to create opportunities that are aligned with the aspirations of many of the people within Aboriginal and Native American communities. These opportunities often include:
- providing funding for community investment initiatives
- offering skills development and training
- supporting education and scholarship programs
- facilitating Aboriginal business opportunities
Enbridge forges mutually beneficial relationships with Aboriginal and Native American people. We strive to improve our own guidelines and programs to address the changing Aboriginal and Native American landscape in both Canada and the United States.
