Corporate Social Responsibility

Environment

Our Responsibility

It’s more than compliance, it’s protection. We work hard to minimize impacts to landowners and the environment. Environmental stewardship is essential to our business, and each employee manages our environmental impact by minimizing waste, emissions, and discharges, while meeting, or exceeding safety or economic justification, applicable laws and regulations.

Environmental Policy

Williams’ management approach to environmental, health and safety is articulated in our Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) policy.Williams Board of Directors includes an EHS committee charged with governance and oversight of EHS matters to ensure we maintain a culture of environmental protection. We’re committed to operating safely, reliably and in a way that avoids, minimizes and helps mitigate our environmental impacts.

 

Environmental Management System

Our EHS Management System, known as the Williams Integrated Management System or WIMS, makes our EHS policy operational and is the primary method of incorporating our EHS goals into our business, ensuring that the appropriate measures and metrics are employed enterprise-wide.

 

WIMS is a platform from which the company provides policies, requirements, guidelines, procedures, standards, specifications, and other documents used to design, build, operate and maintain our assets. WIMS defines how we manage and reduce physical risk to our assets, the environment and people. It is our expectation that every employee adheres to WIMS and is dedicated to operational discipline – Doing The Right Thing, The Right Way, Every Time.
