Community Engagement

Assessing the impact of our operations on communities occurs early in our engagement process. Then, led by a community relations professional within each of our operating areas, we identify and engage with local officials, citizens, businesses, nonprofits, emergency responders and landowners to address concerns and tailor communications.

Minimizing Local Impacts

Our community relations teams work to understand and address community concerns proactively, effectively and efficiently. In addition, our 24-hour feedback hotline connects callers with personnel who have the knowledge and authority to address and resolve issues, and we follow up as needed to provide updates on progress.

Economic Impacts

In addition to developing a local workforce with higher-than-average wages, which improves household incomes at the local level, we provide significant economic benefits to our operating counties and states through taxes and impact fees that go toward infrastructure improvements, including upgrades to roads and schools.

Giving & Volunteering

We are committed to maximizing our positive impact through charitable giving, encouraging volunteerism and matching employee donations where eligible. We also seize opportunities for kindness. As an example, in 2021, the pandemic prevented us from gathering employees for holiday celebrations. Instead, we turned the funds we might have otherwise spent into a $200,000 donation to food banks across our network.
