Enerplus conducts its business in a way that ensures the health and safety of our workers, respects the environment and builds positive, long-term relationships in the community.

Corporate Responsibility

At Enerplus, we are proud of what we do, and how we do it.

We are committed to keeping people safe, respecting the environment and being a trusted neighbour because We Care. We Care is more than just an idea, it is how we work. It keeps us focused on developing resources responsibly and using sustainable business practices.

While our story may be new to you, operating in a sustainable and responsible way is something we have been passionate about for a long time. Everyone, including our Board of Directors, contractors, employees and Leadership Team, plays a role in making it happen. Sustainability guides our decision making, and is incorporated into our strategic plans. It is the foundation of our Safety & Social Responsibility Policy.

Sustainable business practices are essential to managing our risks, operating efficiently and developing growth opportunities.  Maintaining a sustainability mindset is central to the culture we have created at Enerplus, where our core values emphasize Honesty, Engagement, Accountability, Responsibility and Teamwork (HEART).


Ensuring the safety of our workforce and our communities while protecting and preserving the environment is what being a trusted partner means to us.
