Edwin Makkinga

Manager, Carbon Policy | Enbridge Inc.

Edwin is the Manager of Carbon Policy for Enbridge Inc., one of North America’s largest energy delivery companies. In this role, he leads the company’s climate policy initiatives, responding to an increasingly carbon-constrained environment. One of his most exciting tasks to date has been the development of greenhouse gas reduction goals across Enbridge’s business units. Their key successes thus far include identifying key performance indicators and building the company’s carbon and energy footprint across its hydrocarbon transportation, natural gas processing, transmission and distribution and renewable energy business.

Before joining Enbridge Inc., he worked for Enbridge Gas Distribution and Aqua Terre Solutions which enabled him to gain a strong background in environmental management with a focus on air emissions, contaminated soil and groundwater remediation and environmental assessment and screenings.

He feels truly blessed to have the opportunity to work in the field of corporate sustainability and environmental management. While he enjoys all aspects of his job, he thinks the most satisfying aspect is having the ability to collaborate with a large number of fellow professionals on developing strategies to help facilitate the transition to a lower carbon economy.

He has a B.Sc. from Redeemer College and a Certificate in Environmental Management from the University of Toronto. He’s always interested in connecting with former colleagues, managers or fellow professionals interested in discussing the emerging low-carbon economy.
