New Jersey Resources


12/06/2023 - For Immediate Release

Wall, NJ – New Jersey Resources (NYSE: NJR) was named one of America’s Most Responsible Companies by Newsweek, and one of only 156 companies to earn this distinction for five consecutive years for its excellence and accomplishments in corporate social responsibility. NJR is among the top 600 of the nation’s largest public corporations across 14 industries recognized for their work and accomplishments on sustainability issues, performance and reputation.

America’s Most Responsible Companies are evaluated and ranked across environmental, social and governance (ESG) key performance indicators, while an independent survey asked U.S. citizens about their perception of company activities related to corporate social responsibility. This recognition complements NJR’s commitment to a cleaner energy future as the company drives sustainable business practices that add value, fuel growth and strengthen the environment and society.

“Underpinning NJR’s commitment to sustainability is our belief that making a positive and lasting impact on our people, customers, communities and environment is intertwined with our success,” said Steve Westhoven, president and CEO of New Jersey Resources. “To be recognized for our commitment to ESG and among such an elite group of environmentally and socially conscience companies is a huge accomplishment and credit to our entire team.”

NJR is committed to long-term, sustainable value creation, pursuing energy solutions that meet the needs of its customers, employees and communities. By leveraging its existing infrastructure and investing in innovation — such as carbon-capture technologies and low-carbon fuels — the company is making broad-based decarbonization a reality toward a cleaner energy future.
