We have been proud members of the communities we serve for more than 160 years. That’s why we continue to give back with our time, talent and resources. Giving back is part of who we are — our employees are passionate about making a difference as active members of their communities.
Southern Company Gas and its subsidiaries actively participate in community initiatives and events that foster a healthy environment, promote education with a focus on STEM and provide warmth and comfort to those most in need.
Virginia Natural Gas was the recipient of the Southern Gas Association’s 2018 Community Service Award for its Longleaf Pine Restoration Project. The annual award recognizes the most effective service or outreach program that improves the communities in which its natural gas industry members operate.
In 2018, Nicor Gas was named a Top Utility Environmental Champion, according to a new Cogent Reports survey of utility customers nationwide conducted by Market Strategies International. The results designate the top 43 utilities throughout the country that have shown dedication to environmental stewardship and are published in a report titled Utility Trusted Brand & Customer Engagement™ Residential.
Giving back is an important part of the Southern Company Gas culture and we are proud of taking a productive role as a member of our many communities.
