At Emera Inc., we support meaningful programs and initiatives in the communities where our employees live and work. Our Community Investment Program focuses on making our communities stronger and safer, as well as more innovative, inclusive, and diverse.
Our key focus areas are:
Within each of these strategic focus areas, we consider opportunities through a lens of diversity, equity and inclusion. Recognizing the important value this lens adds, Emera and its operating companies launched the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Fund in February 2021. Through this fund, we are collectively investing a minimum of $5 million over five years to support organizations and initiatives advancing inclusion and diversity in our communities. The fund is reflective of Emera’s journey towards an inclusive and diverse culture, supported by active inclusion and diversity employee networks across the organization.
Emera’s Community Investment Program is formally audited by the London Benchmarking Group (LBG). The LBG Model is the recognized global standard for managing, measuring, and reporting community investment, helping companies ensure credibility and accountability in the disclosure of the value of community investment.
