PositiveNRG is our company’s philanthropic giving program. It helps to build our culture by creating a workplace that empowers employees to support communities, causes, and organizations that they elect to champion through donations of their time and/or money. The platform offers multiple touch points, which allow for engagement with non-profit organizations and internal employee team building.
NRG invests in the well-being of employees. We provide programs that holistically support physical, emotional, and financial wellness, allowing our colleagues the opportunity to take control of their well-being and focus on what matters most to them for a healthy, secure future. In 2020, this took on added urgency as we worked to provide resources, support, and reassurance for a workplace suddenly confronted with the realities of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Creating customer-focused paths to sustainable energy
In 2020, we guided more business customers to what’s optimal, leveraging our energy industry knowledge, a technology-agnostic mindset, and a focus on their unique situations, goals, and needs. From there, robust solutions — efficient, resilient, cost-effective, and sustainable — naturally emerged.
There is no shortage of sustainable solutions for business and residential customers. What’s needed is a guiding hand to help customers navigate through the possibilities and land on what’s right — for them.
NRG is committed to leading its sector in sustainability transparency and disclosure. We follow the leading globally accepted frameworks and standards in order to provide key information to all of our stakeholders.
In 2020, COVID impacted everyone’s world. As two weeks to flatten the curve turned to months of adaptation, new policies, practices, and protections took hold, and the interconnected nature of human welfare and the economy became indisputable. Companies flooded the airwaves with philanthropic action and calls for unity and support during 'these unprecedented times.' And, more than ever before, our first responders became larger than life heroes, sacrificing to protect and care for us all.
Sustainability is a philosophy that underpins and facilitates value creation across our business and for all our stakeholders. It is an integral piece of our corporate strategy and ties directly to business success, reduced risk, and enhanced reputational value. Our sustainability philosophy spans five comprehensive, key pillars – business, customers, workplace, operations, and suppliers – that help embed it into the culture and fabric of our organization.
