A Message
From the CEO

Responsibly Providing the Fuels
Needed by Our Nation

I am pleased to present NuStar Energy’s first Sustainability Report. One of the things that makes NuStar such a great company is our strong corporate culture, which was created by our Chairman, Bill Greehey. In our culture, we treat everyone with respect, we give back to our communities, we protect the environment and we demand that all of our employees hold themselves and each other to the highest ethical standards. Quite simply, we believe in doing the right things for the right reasons.

Our company is much more than a collection of pipelines and terminals. NuStar’ s #1 asset has been and always will be our employees. We believe that if you take care of your employees, they will take care of the company, our unitholders and our communities. We believe that these principles are the cornerstone of NuStar’ s success and have helped us to recruit and retain first-in-class employees and make NuStar a great place to work. In fact, we are very proud that we have been recognized on FORTUNE’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” list 12 times.

Environmental, health and safety excellence are core business values for NuStar. We have always gone above and beyond in protecting the environment and in ensuring the safety of our employees and contractors, as well as the communities in which we operate. To do this, we have implemented rigorous environmental and safety programs, protocols and practices to build and continually enhance a culture of safety among all of our employees and contractors. Thanks to our employees’ constant commitment to safety, we are proud to have an outstanding environmental record, one of the very best employee safety records in our industry and to have been named a Safety Excellence Award winner 10 times by the International Liquid Terminals Association.

We are proud of the resilience and strength of our business across our footprint, which is a testament to our employees' perseverance and the quality of our assets and the markets we serve. We are focused on nurturing that resilience and strength to ensure that we can continue to meet the nation's and the world's growing and evolving energy needs. And we are already demonstrating our ability to do just that through the success of our West Coast renewable fuels logistics, which not only generate solid returns for our investors but also help lower carbon emissions in communities across the region and other environmentally sensitive areas of our country.

On behalf of our Board of Directors and employees, we hope you enjoy reading our inaugural Sustainability Report. We look forward to continuing to share our sustainability story with you in the years to come. Thank you for your interest in NuStar!
