Coastal Climate Initiative

Team Up to Help Fight Climate Change – and We’ll Match Your Donation Dollar for Dollar!

Let’s start in our own backyard.

As a company headquartered at the Jersey Shore, and committed to environmental sustainability, we have a unique perspective on the fight against climate change and our role in helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In addition to making our own operations more sustainable, we’re taking action to make a difference in the communities we serve – and encourage our customers to do the same.

We’ve launched the Coastal Climate Initiative to advance the fight against climate change and the effects of extreme weather on our shore communities. The program kicks off with support for The Nature Conservancy in New Jersey, an environmental nonprofit with over 60 years of experience working to protect water and lands in New Jersey, and their work to restore saltwater tidal wetlands in the Barnegat Bay – part of NJNG's service territory.

How do wetlands help fight climate change?
Coastal marshes act as "carbon sinks," reducing emissions by actively removing carbon from the atmosphere and safely sequestering it away in the ground. They also act as a natural barrier against climate impacts, reducing the effects of storm surge and helping protect people and property in New Jersey's coastal communities.

How can you help?
We invite you to join us as we help fight climate change and protect the environment through our Coastal Climate Initiative. Your donation will further the critical work of The Nature Conservancy in New Jersey. To maximize the impact of your contribution, NJNG will match your donation dollar for dollar, up to a total of $50,000. All donations go directly to The Nature Conservancy in New Jersey.
