We’d like to help with your environmental project…

At Newfoundland Power we’re committed to operating in an environmentally responsible manner while enhancing the quality of life in the communities where we live and work. We take pride in the difference our employees have made in communities across the island through our employee-driven Environmental Commitment Program. And to be recognized last year as an environmental leader in our province with the Newfoundland and Labrador Environmental Award for Business really meant a lot.

EnviroFest is our annual celebration of the environment which takes place during National Environment Week. In fact, we’ve been hosting EnviroFest for almost 20 years now! Each year, our employees dig in and play a hands-on role in the projects by volunteering, working right alongside our community partners. They like getting their hands dirty whether it’s planting trees, flowers and shrubs to beautify a green space or filling up bags with garbage at a community clean up. We like all shades of green, so if you’re improving a park area, enhancing a trail system, starting a recycling program or transforming a green space, we want to help.

We are accepting proposals for community-based environmental projects across the island right now. Don’t miss out – get your proposal in today! The deadline is 4:00 p.m., Friday, April 15, 2016. Successful applicants will be notified on Friday, April 22, 2016.

After all, it’s the environmental actions we take today that will make a BIG difference tomorrow. Let’s leave a positive environmental legacy for many years to come…to be enjoyed by our children and our children’s children. Envirofest 2016
