Caring for Our People. Caring for Our Planet.

Sustainability is a natural extension of Southern Star’s vision of one community working together to be the leading provider of clean, safe and reliable energy for tomorrow.

For over 100 years, we’ve provided continuous, quality service. We are a leading transporter of energy to America’s heartland through our commitments today and our future goals.

As demand for clean, safe and reliable energy continues to grow, Southern Star is positioned to meet the energy needs of the communities where we live and work through sustainable economic, environmental, and social practices.

Environmental

In 2020, Southern Star committed to reducing methane emissions 50% by 2025, with a goal of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

We are dedicated to finding ways to reduce energy and water consumption at our facilities, restoring areas impacted by construction back to their original state, and increasing recycling efforts across our system.

As a member of ONE Future, Southern Star joined a coalition of natural gas companies focused on minimizing methane emissions. Further, as a member of INGAA (Interstate Natural Gas Association of America), we are committed to methane emission reduction initiatives by increasing leak surveys, reducing bleeding pneumatic devices, and increasing focus on rod packing leaks and changeouts.

Social/Economic/Community

Southern Star serves our communities through outreach efforts, engagement, and partnerships. We help fuel the quality of life within the communities where we work and operate. Team members give their time and talent to local non-profit and youth groups across eight states, including STEM and robotics programs in local middle schools and high schools.

Corporate Governance

Strong, ethical leadership is the foundation of Southern Star’s culture of safety, reliability, and sustainability.
