Who Owns Enbridge and How to Divest Your Portfolio

October 11, 2021

By Star Ames

Enbridge is a huge and powerful corporation which is tearing through more than 330 miles of natural habitat to install new pipelines in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Despite overwhelming opposition at public hearings, permits were issued for this mega-corporation to move forward. This pipeline system currently averages an oil spill, leak, rupture, or explosion every 20 days, which releases tar sands oil onto our lands, surface water, wetlands, and ground water. At best, only 30% of oil is recovered after a spill. 

How can we stop their destructive process?  MOVE YOUR MONEY.

The Enbridge conglomerate consists of the following companies: 

Enbridge Employee Services, Inc.
Enbridge Energy, L.P.
Enbridge Energy Company, Inc.
Enbridge Energy Management, L.L.C.
Enbridge Energy Partners, L.P.
Enbridge Operational Services, Inc., and
Enbridge Pipelines (“Lakehead”) L.L.C.

Each company has a certain percentage of shares traded on the open market. These shares are largely held by trust funds, retirement funds, mutual funds, and banks. Some of them are part of 401(k)s and insurance investments. In general, Enbridge is held by people who value security over action. But you may not even be aware that you are funding Enbridge. For example, the State of Wisconsin Investment Board has $2.1M invested; Vanguard Group has $63M. Do you know where your money is being used?

As the world moves away from oil, every dollar invested in Enbridge loses value. Ask yourself what is more important to you, a clean environment, or a stable investment?  

We can change the future by moving our money to an ESG (environment, social, governance) fund. There may be a fee charged to divest your portfolio of these funds but ask your broker to apply an environmental filter on all your investments.  Find a broker that is sensitive to environmental issues. There are many who will be happy to assist you.

This list of the top Enbridge stockholders is alphabetized so you can easily compare it against your portfolio.
