This report largely focuses on our economic, social and environmental performance during 2010 and 2011
and establishes goals for the period 2012–2013. We updated the on-line report with key 2012 data points and material information. We account for our operated assets only, which exclude our non-operated joint venture, DCP Midstream, and our jointly operated Gulfstream Natural Gas System and Southeast Supply Header.
Our reporting conforms to generally accepted standards, including the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).
A detailed GRI index and other information is available on our website. GRI has confirmed this report meets the requirements of GRI 3.1 Application Level B. See Our Statement GRI Application Level Check.
We have adopted reporting principles for public disclosure, which are: transparency, consistency,
completeness, accuracy and relevancy. These principles are reviewed each reporting cycle, and expectations
are continuously improved against each principle. For more information regarding our principles, please
view our online sustainability report.
We consider several external and internal factors to determine what to report, including those:
• Raised by stakeholders;
• Reported in our industry and relevant to Spectra Energy;
• Required by law and regulations in the areas where we work and voluntary agreements in which
Spectra Energy is a participant;
• Related to upholding our values, policies and commitments;
• Representing significant risks to the organization; and
• Enabling our success as well as our contribution to a sustainable future.
