Community investment is about having a purpose.
As a company with a long-term outlook, we believe we have the dual responsibility to drive business results AND be a force in the community.
MEG gets out into our communities, listens to our stakeholders about their challenges and opportunities and then creates strategies to drive measurable change.
We’ve provided support to children and teens in many ways, from covering school maintenance costs and library funding, to donating furniture to youth centres.
MEG also helps charitable and community organizations, which provide support to families with needs and social activities for Elders.
MEG also takes part in community initiatives such as Energy in Action. In this initiative, we visit community schools near our operations and share information about environmental stewardship in a fun and interactive way. The Energy in Action initiative also donates textbooks to school libraries.
MEG employees get involved!
MEG employees support one another and their communities. We often champion causes together, whether it’s The Big Mo for Movember (providing funds and awareness for men’s health) , The Ride to Conquer Cancer, STARS Air Rescue, the CUPS Adopt-A-Family program, National Aboriginal Awareness Week or the CIBC Run for the Cure, we enjoy celebrating volunteerism as a team. MEG employees donated over $150,000 to their communities in 2011 – and MEG Energy was happy to match their donations dollar for dollar.
Whether we contribute financially or with volunteer hours, MEG is committed to collaborating with communities to create positive outcomes.
