Dear fellow Grantmakers,
I’m pleased to share NW Natural’s 2016 Community and Sustainability Annual Report, which highlights our corporate philanthropy, employee volunteerism, environmental stewardship, safety programs and other ways we give back.
This year’s edition features our five Partners of Focus for 2017-2019. These nonprofits address critical needs facing our region, with an emphasis on helping families and children at risk.
Our energy efficiency and environmental programs include a new Low Carbon Pathway, an ambitious effort that will guide NW Natural’s efforts to lower greenhouse gas emissions related to our product, our customers and our region’s transportation sector.
Whether it’s emergency preparedness training, helping customers save energy, or providing food and shelter for volunteer and community events, all of us here at NW Natural are proud to support the causes that make a difference in Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Thank you for joining us in making our communities stronger.
