Project C

Environmental Justice & Social Equity

As a leader in clean and sustainable energy, it’s our responsibility to fight for a just and fair world. Ultimately, change must come from within our communities, which is why we’ve partnered with some of the best local New York organizations that are working hard to solve difficult problems. Together, we’re identifying important environmental justice and social equity issues that we proudly support.

Standing up for what’s right

Learn how we’re working with our partners to fight against environmental and social injustice.

What is climate justice?

Climate justice addresses social issues tied to our changing planet. This acknowledges that the effects of climate change impact people differently based on demographic, racial, geographic and other factors.

What is social equity?

Social equity helps provide access and availability of services to everyone, no matter who they are. This makes our systems fair and just for all. Social equity policies range across education, healthcare, finance and other areas of public policy. In the energy industry, it’s our job to fight for fairness and affordability for everyone.

Our programs

We are providing financial support to our customers struggling to pay home energy bills. We are also connecting our most vulnerable customers to any available programs and services from our local partners. Learn more about our Consumer Advocates program.

This federal program provides low-income households with assistance for their energy costs, along with weatherization and energy-related repairs. This increases social equity and sustainable development in our New York communities.

Alongside HeartShare, we are helping low-income New Yorkers stay warm and healthy by helping those in need pay for utility bills and other essentials.

We are breaking down economic and social barriers for clean energy access. This includes providing 100% reimbursement of electric energy efficiency project costs to small businesses.

Alongside the United Way, we’re providing a 3-year investment of $750,000 to support those struggling as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. This will help NYC families become self-sufficient and more economically stable for the future.

Working together for equity and justice

We are committed to working alongside our partners to ensure social equity is a part of all we do.
