The path toward a brighter, more sustainable future is paved with efforts to make a positive impact and the winners of our NRG Impact Awards are no strangers to walking it. These awards recognize our exceptional colleagues who dedicate their time and passion to making a difference in the places where they live and work. They exemplify our belief that every action, no matter how small, can contribute to a larger, positive change.

At NRG, our responsibility extends beyond the office. We’re committed to having a positive impact on people, communities, and the environment. There are three categories of ways we recognize this impact — Volunteer of the Year, Community Champion, and Purpose on Point — showcasing the people putting our new purpose into action and inspiring others to get involved.

This installment of our Impact Awards series shines a spotlight on the winners in the Volunteer of the Year and Community Champion categories, two awards focused on exceptional volunteerism. Check out our video to get to know these incredible individuals.
