Entergy Named Among Top 50 Community-Minded Companies in the Nation

For the fourth consecutive year, Entergy Corporation, a BCW member, has been named a recipient of the Civic 50 award from Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service.

Entergy is one of only two utilities recognized by The Civic 50 as one of the top 50 most community-minded companies in the United States. The award serves as the national standard for superior corporate citizenship and showcases how effectively the company uses its time, skills and resources to impact its communities.

“Creating and sustaining healthy, vibrant communities is an integral part of Entergy’s mission,” said Leo Denault, chairman and CEO of Entergy. “It is an honor to be recognized among the nation’s top 50 companies who consider corporate citizenship a priority and we are grateful to our employees and our neighbors living in the communities we serve for partnering with us to achieve this national recognition. We look forward to enhancing these partnerships for years to come.”

In 2018, Entergy employees contributed nearly 112,000 volunteer hours and the company’s shareholders committed approximately $18.4 million to programs dedicated to improving communities across Entergy’s four-state service territory.

Recipients of The Civic 50 award are both public and private companies with U.S. operations and revenues of $1 billion or more. Selections are made based on four dimensions of community engagement: investment; integration; institutionalization and impact. The winners were recognized at Points of Light’s conference during The Civic 50 Gala in St. Paul, Minnesota. Patty Riddlebarger, vice president of corporate social responsibility at Entergy, attended the gala and accepted the award on behalf of the company.

“Entergy has been a tremendous community partner to so many in Westchester over the years,” said Marsha Gordon, president and CEO of the BCW. “I personally would like to thank the company and all of its employees for all they have done to make Westchester such a great place to live, work and play.”
