Our business is global. But we live and work in local communities — and we never lose sight of the powerful positive impact we can create there. As a responsible corporate citizen, we work with our communities throughout all stages of a project lifecycle — from early development through permitting, construction and operation.
Because ultimately, local is where we live
We view strong community relations as essential to our business. Getting all the stakeholders around the same table gives us a golden opportunity to listen, learn, engage and educate. It’s the most direct path to mutually productive understanding and, as such, has become one of our top priorities. Identifying, evaluating and addressing these issues takes collaboration among our corporate environmental, legal, operations and business development functions, among others.
We have strengthened our approach through increased local stakeholder communication and alignment of our community investments with community impacts. Through our engagements, we seek to better understand our communities’ current and future needs. This helps directly inform our community investment strategy and tailor our approach to the unique needs of each community. We also expanded our community relations team at our Corpus Christi facility in Texas and at our Sabine Pass facility in Louisiana.
