Customer & Community


Despite the upheaval created by COVID-19, employees at Con Edison and Orange & Rockland Utilities, Inc. (O&R) answered the call to donate their own time and resources in the communities we serve. Keeping the health and safety of our workers and the general public top of mind, we engaged in many virtual volunteer activities throughout the year. We also maintained social distancing while working on various outdoor projects in our service area. To further enhance the quality of life in our communities, we continued to provide financial support, in-kind contributions and service on boards of hundreds of nonprofit organizations dedicated to the arts, environmental stewardship, civics and education.

As part of our commitment to a clean energy future, Con Edison employees lend their time and skills volunteering with partner groups committed to environmental equity and helping disadvantaged communities.

In 2021, 227 Company employees volunteered a total of 2,002 hours at community events and programs in our service territory. Employee volunteerism is integral to the Company’s support for environmental stewardship. For the first time, we brought together three nonprofit partners for a day of service on Governors Island. Our employees volunteered on Governors Island with Billion Oyster Project, Grow NYC, and Friends of Governors Island. Volunteers spent the day building oyster gabions (artificial reef cages) for the Hudson River, preparing teaching gardens, as well as removing invasive species on walkways. Volunteer opportunities both strengthen the Company’s connections to local communities and make Con Edison employees a part of our commitment to environmental partnerships.

We also participated in virtual volunteer events that support environmental education, including career panels, mentoring, and tutoring. These opportunities help us spread awareness about Green Jobs, as well as internships and training programs. We are particularly proud of our efforts to provide help and inspire hope through volunteerism during a time that has challenged us as never before.
