Nexen Reaches Out to Communities

Nexen Reaches Out to Communities

At Nexen, giving back to the communities where we operate is deeply rooted in our values. We believe successful companies are a part of successful communities. When we help build communities that are strong and dynamic, they attract and retain people who can be a part of our growing business success. Whether we're investing in organizations to help street children in Nigeria, helping disadvantaged and disabled young people in the UK, helping fishing families in the Gulf of Mexico or advancing educational opportunities for students, we work alongside our communities to help them address each of their unique challenges.

Nexen's "ReachOut" program, brings strategic vision to the work we do in communities. The program focuses on three key areas:

  • Giving: We support communities where we live and work through meaningful corporate gifts including cash donations, sponsorships and gifts in-kind to charitable, non-profit and community organizations.
  • Matching: We match charitable contributions made by our employees in Canada, the U.S. and UK, up to $20,000 per employee, per year.
  • Helping: We recognize and encourage employee volunteering through volunteer days, volunteer grants and team-building events that help build stronger communities.
