Press Release

July 31, 2020 /3BL Media/ Our positiveNRG program is a central part of our identity. While each of us works hard every day to realize our organizational purpose—bringing the power of energy to people and organizations—positiveNRG gives us an opportunity to answer why. NRG is more than the power we produce, and the products we provide, we are an organization that aspires to improve the communities in which our employees and customers live and work.

PositiveNRG powers progress, enabling us to be responsible corporate citizens; active community members; well-rounded, healthy individuals; and positive contributors to the communities in which we live and serve. By empowering our employees to do good work; by partnering with organizations that are making a difference; by contributing financially, NRG helps forge a brighter future.

The positiveNRG Year in Review serves as a reflection and quantifier of what the program achieved in 2019. For us, this year truly represented our commitment to service. From corporate giving to employee volunteerism, 2019 proved an extraordinary year for giving back. Focused on causes dedicated to helping those we call our neighbors, positiveNRG donated $3.2 million in support of 691 charities across 42 states. Employee contributions for the year reached over $467K donations, including matched dollars, and over 11K volunteer hours.

Our achievements in 2019 are reflective of our people power. With the collective drive and action of our employees, stakeholders and partners, with passion and commitment, we have positively impacted our communities, both local and national.

By leveraging our collective strength, we have made a positive impact in 2019. As we continue our efforts, we are excited to see the difference that positiveNRG can make into the future.
