Promoting Prosperity

At its core, TC Energy provides much of the foundation that allows North Americans to live comfortable lives and their businesses to thrive. We transport the energy required to heat, cool and light buildings, to get people where they need to go, and to maintain high standards of medical care, education, telecommunications, science and technology.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve continued to safely provide an essential service. Like others, we have also become acutely aware of the inequalities and vulnerabilities that exist in our society. We want to help steer the world back on track, towards a sustainable future.

 

Managing for the energy transition

SDGs:SDG 09.svgSDG 09.svgSDG 09.svg

TC Energy’s work in innovation and technology, emissions reductions, community engagement and business resiliency spans more than six decades – and showcases our commitment to sustainability. However, we recognize the need to further embed sustainability into our management decision-making, systems and processes.

To this end, we continue to refine and expand our enterprise risk management framework, which enhances our ability to manage energy system changes and climate change risks and opportunities. We have also included climate-related risks in our governance, strategy and risk management planning activities. Refer to our ESG Data Sheet, TCFD Alignment Table and SASB Alignment Table for more details.

Enhancing energy sector sustainability with technology

SDGs:SDG 09.svgSDG 09.svgSDG 09.svg

TC Energy is focused on investing in emerging technologies and innovative solutions that drive our safe, reliable and sustainable operations forward. We encourage creative thinking within our teams, celebrate bold and progressive ideas through our Ideation program, and seek out R&D opportunities to improve our own performance – and that of our sector.

Since 2019, we’ve made investments in next-generation technology and clean fuel research, including:

  • Research to assess how our extensive natural gas network can be leveraged to economically transport renewable natural gas (RNG) – including biogas, synthesis gas, biomethane and hydrogen – to connect consumers across North America with sources of net zero energy while minimizing the impact to landowners and communities.
  • Advanced new technology in Mexico to further enhance how we protect pipelines in the ground.

Strengthening community resilience

SDGs:SDG 09.svgSDG 09.svgSDG 09.svg

When people thrive, so do communities and businesses. Across North America, we support the people and communities we call home – providing quality jobs, purchasing from local businesses and suppliers, and partnering with communities to help them be vibrant, prosperous and resilient places.

  • Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, we’ve supported local communities and Indigenous groups in meaningful ways:
  • As of June 30, Build Strong has donated more than $700,000 to local charities focused on food security to aid the most vulnerable through the crisis. Our program relies on a network of more than 200 employees across North America to direct our giving at the community level
  • Reached out proactively to more than 200 Indigenous communities across North America, our Indigenous Relations team provided food, medical supplies and transportation services based on the needs identified by each community.
