New Jersey Resources Recognized as One of America's Most Responsible Companies by Newsweek

For the second consecutive year, New Jersey Resources (NYSE: NJR) has been named one of America's Most Responsible Companies by Newsweek in recognition of its excellence and accomplishments in corporate social responsibility.

NJR was selected from a cross-industry pool of over 2,000 companies that were evaluated and ranked based on a detailed analysis of key performance indicators in three areas of corporate social responsibility: environmental, social and corporate governance.

"This is a great acknowledgement of our company's commitment to sustainable practices for the environment, our employees and the communities we serve," said Steve Westhoven, president and CEO of New Jersey Resources. "NJR continues to be a leader in reducing emissions, promoting diversity, equity and inclusion, and supporting communities through our corporate citizenship and volunteerism efforts. It's an honor to be recognized for our commitment to these values."

Environmental stewardship and sustainability have long been priorities for NJR. Its regulated utility, New Jersey Natural Gas, has been a leader in reducing emissions ? making infrastructure upgrades and investments to build the most environmentally sound delivery system in the state, as measured by leaks per mile ? as well as helping customers reduce their energy consumption through its energy-efficiency initiatives. NJR's renewable energy subsidiary, Clean Energy Ventures, was one of the earliest investors in New Jersey's solar market; and today, it is one of the largest, with over $1 billion invested in solar projects across all the state's 21 counties.
