Our Respect for All People and All Cultures

Because of the need for a significant level of energy infrastructure development across the United States, it is imperative that pipeline companies engage with local stakeholders in a respectful, informative, and clear manner on all projects. This engagement will ensure an open and honest dialogue with stakeholder groups, while facilitating the development and ultimate delivery of new infrastructure to transport and deliver a diverse, sustainable, and reliable supply of energy commodities to help fuel our economy. Energy Transfer is committed to operating its business in a manner that honors and respects all people and communities in which we do business. The following core values and principles have and continue to guide our engagement with those affected by the company's operations:

  • We will engage with all stakeholders that are affected by our projects.

  • We will be respectful and considerate of all people and communities by communicating clear, timely, and accurate information.

  • We will listen to and consider stakeholder issues and concerns in making decisions regarding our projects.

  • We will follow the rule of law.

In addition to our own guidelines, Energy Transfer has adopted America's Natural Gas Transporters' Commitment to Landowners, which has been endorsed by the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America (INGAA) and is applicable to all of our infrastructure projects across all product lines.

We know that meaningful consultation and ongoing communications with citizens, governments, and all stakeholders are keys to building and operating successful energy infrastructure. These collaborative relationships and communications enable us to promote economic prosperity, all while building safe, environmentally responsible infrastructure and enhancing America's energy independence.


Our Buy American Policy

Energy Transfer believes in supporting American jobs and manufacturing. We have a corporate policy that sets buying American-made products as our top priority. The following “buy American” policy is in our Procurement Guidelines:

"It is the intent of Energy Transfer Partners for its capital projects that a priority be given to the procurement of any component of the projects to be manufactured by U.S. registered companies located within the borders of the U.S. and using U.S. employees. Matters of cost, item availability and project schedule will be the key factors in evaluating if U.S. materials can be selected for the project. With that discretion given to the project and procurement teams, a weight is to be given to a "Buy American" approach."
