Investing in Our Communities

Our vision is to deliver energy with purpose. And as our energy infrastructure connects energy to the world, we want to shape a healthy and vibrant future for everyone, empowering new possibilities. With our vision, mission and values to guide us, we fund innovative approaches in key areas, focusing on communities where our employees live and work.

Diversity and Inclusion

One of our values is to champion people. This means embracing diversity and inclusion. When employees are encouraged and empowered to be their authentic selves, it elevates performance and helps us partner responsibly.

We invest in efforts that:

  • Promote inclusion and belonging
  • Address bias and leverage the value of differing perspectives
  • Facilitate collaborative problem-solving and new approaches that strengthen communities

Our ultimate goal is a world where fairness and inclusiveness are standard, and everyone’s voice and perspective can be heard and appreciated.


Climate Action

Another of our values is to do the right thing. This means we're guided by strong business ethics and are willing to stand up for what's right. A clean environment is critical to a healthy and vibrant future for everyone.

From tree plantings and carbon sequestration to biodiversity and habitat restoration, we aim to heal the environment and promote climate resiliency. Our long-term aspiration is to help shape a future where human impacts on climate and the environment are considered in community decision-making processes.


Economic Prosperity

One of our values is to shape the future. And when we think about the future, we know we want to live and work in thriving communities.

For an individual, a vibrant future often begins with a job. For a community, it often begins with both policies and people who enable responsible growth. Because we care deeply about the communities where we live and work to the border we share with Mexico, we invest in programs and initiatives that support economic growth and financial stability. We prioritize underserved communities, and want to contribute long-term to economic prosperity for all.


Local Support

Our mission is to be North America’s premier energy infrastructure company. To achieve this, we establish partnerships and exhibit leadership in governance, technology, safety, security and corporate social responsibility.

We value community service and volunteerism, and encourage our employees to get involved in the communities where they live and work, whether they donate their time and energy or serve on nonprofit boards of directors.

Community Investments Across Our Companies

The Sempra Energy Foundation works to shape a healthy and sustainable future where no individual, family or community is left behind. The Foundation is currently focusing its resources on the COVID-19 pandemic.

Across the Sempra Energy family of companies, we support communities in foundational ways. Giving at IEnova, Oncor, SDG&E, Sempra LNG and SoCalGas aligns with the longstanding strengths of our utilities and other areas of infrastructure expertise we’ve developed over the years, with grants made in support of the environment, education, economic development, emergency preparedness and safety, to name a few.
