Positive Social Impact

Social

 

A commitment to lasting, positive social impact.

As Avangrid grows, so does our responsibility to create positive social impacts. Like our commitment to a clean energy future, we work every day to help make a more just and equitable world. 

We’re doing this by implementing a social impact strategy focused on the needs of our employees, the communities where we operate, our customers and our supplier partners. 

Our near- and long-term social impact commitments align with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), an international set of goals developed by the United Nations to help make global progress towards a range of critical environmental, social, and financial targets that will help create a more just and sustainable world. The SDGs specific to our social commitments include SDG 2 (zero hunger), SDG 3 (good health and well-being), SDG 5 (gender equality), SDG 8 (decent work and economic growth) and SDG 10 (reduced inequalities).


 

We seek to make a positive social impact through the philanthropic giving of the Avangrid Foundation, corporate donations, employee giving, and volunteerism. We also seek to better understand the needs of our communities – and how we can help – through stakeholder engagement

Avangrid has teams dedicated to building relationships with the communities where our renewables and networks businesses are located during all stages of our operations. In our networks business, for example, the Public Outreach team demonstrates what it means to listen to the community's needs. This team uses a variety of tools to proactively inform customers and community members about potential project impacts while also providing easy-to-access resources to contact us with any questions or concerns. This “Design with the Community in Mind” approach is based on the transformative perspective shift where our decision-making is guided through the lens of our customers.
