HOUSTON, Nov. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Western Midstream Partners, LP (NYSE: WES) ("WES" or "Western Midstream") announced the release of its inaugural Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report.
"Western Midstream's first ESG Report exemplifies our employees' dedication to cultivating a culture of strong corporate responsibility while safely and responsibly managing our daily operations," said President, Chief Executive Officer, and Chief Financial Officer, Michael Ure. "We're proud of the progress we've made in reducing our environmental footprint and contributing positively to our local communities, workforce, and other stakeholders. Now, as we transition to a stand-alone midstream business, it's imperative that we introduce stakeholders to our approach to ESG issues and our successes to date."
As detailed in the report, Western Midstream's ESG strategy focuses on three pillars: supporting sustainable environments, focusing on people, and operating responsibly. Ure continued, "These pillars are rooted in our operating philosophy as demonstrated by our direct-to-wellhead pipeline infrastructure and design of our facilities, which significantly reduces release risks, eliminates storage equipment at the well-site, and reduces emissions. Additionally, we play an important role in delivering natural gas, a lower-emission bridge fuel that will assist in the global transition to cleaner energy sources. We look forward to strengthening our ESG performance and reporting as we further enhance the achievements accomplished to date."
