Entergy In Corporate Citizenship Hall of Fame

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation recognized Entergy Corporation as a Corporate Citizenship Hall of Fame inductee during the 2019 Citizens Awards ceremony last week. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the annual awards program, which recognizes the most innovative and impactful corporate citizenship initiatives raising the bar on social responsibility and spearheading the transformation to a strong, healthy and sustainable future.

Established this year to commemorate the 20th Annual Citizens Awards, the Corporate Citizenship Hall of Fame documents the living history of corporate philanthropy and social responsibility. The Hall of Fame recognizes companies and their leaders, employees, and cross-sector partners who have made extraordinary contributions for the betterment of society and brought about a new era where purpose is the foundation for progress.

“Congratulations to Entergy for once again being a great corporate neighbor in Westchester,” said Marsha Gordon, president and CEO of the Business Council of Westchester. “This recognition is well deserved.”

The U.S. Chamber Foundation announced the Corporate Citizenship Hall of Fame inductees, including UPS, Cisco, DSM, Merck, and GSK (GlaxoSmithKline), on Nov. 14 at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. Twomey accepted the recognition and spoke on behalf of the company.
