New Jersey Resources


12/07/2022 - For Immediate Release

WALL, NJ – For the fourth consecutive year, New Jersey Resources (NYSE: NJR) was named one of America’s Most Responsible Companies by Newsweek in recognition of its excellence and accomplishments in corporate social responsibility.

NJR was selected from a pool of 2,000 companies across 14 industries that were evaluated and ranked based on a detailed analysis of key performance indicators in three areas of corporate social responsibility: environmental, social and corporate governance. The final list recognizes the top most responsible companies in the United States and reinforces NJR’s commitment to corporate sustainability and reputation for service excellence.

“New Jersey Resources is committed to advancing a clean energy future by embracing sustainable business practices that meet the energy needs of our customers, benefit the environment and strengthen the communities we serve,” said Steve Westhoven, President and CEO of New Jersey Resources. “It is an honor to be recognized as one of the most responsible companies in the country. This recognition reflects our belief that sustainability and corporate citizenship are good for business, good for our customers and good for the future.”

Environmental stewardship and sustainability are priorities for NJR, and the company is committed to achieving net-zero emissions from its New Jersey operations by 2050. Its principal subsidiary, New Jersey Natural Gas, which keeps homes and businesses warm for nearly 570,000 customers throughout New Jersey, is leading the way to help reduce emissions – building the first green hydrogen project on the East Coast; modernizing its infrastructure to build the most environmentally sound delivery systems in the state, as measured by leaks per mile; and helping customers reduce energy consumption through its energy-efficiency initiatives. In addition, NJR’s renewable energy subsidiary Clean Energy Ventures is one of the largest owner/operators of solar projects in the state with over $1 billion invested in building clean, emissions-free power for homes and businesses.
