We focus our community investments on advancing local workforce development, supporting DEI, protecting and restoring local ecosystems and responding to other community challenges. Many of our community investment projects are developed based on local concerns identified through our social impact assessment process and analyses of social risks. Our 2022 highlights include:
- $5.6 million in direct giving and matching gifts.
- >15,000 volunteer hours.
Recognizing our employee volunteers
Our employees are dedicated volunteers supporting a range of causes across our communities. We provide employees with up to 8 hours of paid volunteer time per year. We also organize company-sponsored volunteer events throughout the year and have long-standing involvement with Habitat for Humanity, Ronald McDonald House, Southeast Texas Food Bank, The Giving Field community garden, Cameron Parish annual beach sweep, Triangle Community Outreach and Houston Parks and Recreation.
Cheniere employees can receive full pay for up to one workday of volunteer time. In 2022, Cheniere employees volunteered over 15,000 hours in our local communities, including both Cheniere-sponsored events and self-reported volunteering. Every year, we recognize employee volunteers through a Volunteer of the Year program, which awards three employees from different categories with funds to donate to the charity of their choice.
