Energy filled story
2021 Sustainability Report:
We’re in the energy business, but we’re also in the business of improving lives and supporting people worldwide, especially in the communities where we operate.
That starts with the basics: keeping people safe. Our Health, Safety, Security, and Environmental Quality (HSSEQ) system sets out our commitment to stewardship and compliance in these areas. We work internally, with our external partners, and in full cooperation with our regulatory agencies as we strive to maintain our record of zero significant health and safety issues and fault-based driving accidents, and an injury frequency rate below industry averages globally.
Over the past two years, we have continued to enhance and expand our health, safety, and security practices. We’re currently formalizing our operational training and integration program through the launch of NFE University. From monitoring and site surveillance, to inspection and preventive maintenance, to document management and emergency response plans, we will accept nothing less than 100% success in ensuring our employees, contractor partners, customers, and neighbors can all go home safely every day.
An atmosphere of workplace inclusion and ongoing development is also important to us, and we have made significant strides in that area as well. Since 2021, we have expanded primary caregiver leave to 16 weeks, rolled out an IRS-qualified tuition assistance program, implemented a 401(k) matching program, hosted more than 40 summer interns, implemented an annual employee engagement survey, and launched our monthly “Positive Energy Updates” internal newsletter.
Last year, we created 200 jobs, and, in non-U.S. operating locations, we hired locally for more than 90% of new and succession roles. We also delivered regular performance and career development reviews to at least 75% of our employees, and continued to foster development and engagement opportunities at all levels.
Through our NFE Foundation, we seek to invest in our communities to help develop the next generation of innovators and leaders and enhance quality of life, including reducing poverty, hunger, and inequities.
Globally, the COVID-19 pandemic impacted physical and mental health, livelihoods, and children’s ability to learn. We continued investing in helping children learn safely through our scholarship and financial aid programs as well as new, innovative initiatives such as our STEM Boxed Kits Experience, which provided 200 middle school students in San Juan, Puerto Rico, with eight weeks of high-quality engineering resources to enhance their design and critical thinking skills, explore innovative energy solutions and STEM careers, and bring fun into learning.
In Jamaica, we invested in PPE and hand-washing stations to help keep children and teachers safe, and worked with local partners to distribute approximately 2,000 meals to families in need. We’re also supporting access to quality education, with an emphasis on STEM learning and careers, and health and wellness. We plan to award at least 100 scholarships and support at least 1,200 students with financial aid annually. We also will continue to support students across our operational geographies by providing at least 4,000 students with backpacks and school supplies annually.
More broadly, we are engaging with communities around the world on climate change and sustainability. We’re particularly proud to have been able to donate more than 100,000 trees in Jamaica and Africa, supporting more than 500 local farmers.
We are committed to improving the lives of our team and the communities where we operate, and are especially excited to launch all of the upcoming initiatives we have in store!
From development through operations through philanthropy, we’re working to make a long-lasting, positive impact on the economy, environment, and communities where we operate. Because this Earth is home to all of us – it’s our privilege to help protect it, and everyone who lives here.
