EnLink’s commitment to social responsibility extends beyond operational excellence to include financial contributions and employee volunteerism. We empower our employees to support worthy causes through volunteer initiatives and community partnerships with charitable organizations making positive impacts in the areas of education, health and human services, and community development.
We are proud of the many examples of EnLink's good corporate citizenship, including partnerships with homeless and domestic violence support groups, children’s hospitals, volunteer fire departments, and many other organizations dedicated to social progress and community service.
EnLink did not organize in-person volunteer events in 2020 due to our COVID-19 safety protocols. However, we have a rich history of such events, having achieved our sixth consecutive year in 2019 of 100% work group participation in local community service projects. We look forward to resuming these events when it’s safe to do so.
In the meantime, EnLink encouraged employees to find ways to contribute virtually or through socially distanced donation drives. These resulted in donations or other community services initiatives including:
- A corporate donation to the American Heart Association to raise awareness and fund research to fight heart disease and stroke
- Over 3,000 pantry goods to Houston-based Magnificat Houses, a Houston-based nonprofit servicing individuals experiencing homelessness
- Over 500 tech devices, such as laptops, monitors, and phones, to Texas-based nonprofit Computers for the Blind, which serves visually impaired individuals
- An annual EnLink-sponsored Thanksgiving food drive benefiting local pantries and families in Kennonsburg and Marietta, Ohio
- An annual Easter in July drive in which EnLink employees raise funds and supplies to fill almost 150 Easter baskets that were donated to the Freeman-Matthews Head Start Center and the Baton Rouge center of St. Vincent de Paul, a nonprofit that provides food, shelter, and other services to those in need
- Participation in a volunteer project through Christmas in Action, a nonprofit in Midland, Texas, that repairs the homes of low-income elderly and disabled homeowners
- Supplies sent to EnLink families and the communities impacted by Hurricane Laura and later Hurricane Delta; visit EnLink’s "Our People" page to learn about the EnLink Community Fund, which helps employees and their families get back on their feet following catastrophic events
Supporting Local Economies
EnLink supports the economic development of the states and local communities in which we operate through job opportunities, tax revenue, and local supply chain spend. By year-end 2020, EnLink:
- Employed more than 1,000 people and utilized approximately 6,000 contractors across the seven states in which we live and work
- Expects to pay an estimated $40.8 million in 2020 U.S. property taxes in seven states
- Spent over $500 million with over 2,000 suppliers to drive our operations; we strive to work with local suppliers when possible to support the local economies where we live and work
Human and Labor Rights
EnLink’s suppliers, vendors, and contractors, which we collectively refer to as suppliers, play a critical part in our operations. EnLink expects all suppliers to adhere to EnLink’s Core Values and policies. Further, EnLink believes that we have a responsibility to uphold basic human rights and requires that our suppliers treat all individuals with respect and dignity.
To formalize our expectations for this important part of our team, EnLink adopted a Supplier Code of Conduct in January 2021 that highlights our expectations for supplier conduct in respect of human rights, labor practices, environment and safety responsibilities, business ethics, and asset protection.
