New Jersey Natural Gas Recognized for Exceptional Dedication to the Environment
Named 2018 Environmental Champion by the Market Strategies International Utility Trusted Brand and Customer Engagement™: Residential Study
“We believe helping customers save energy and money is important for our
environment and energy future,” said
The Utility Trusted Brand and Customer Engagement™: Residential study is based on a nationwide survey of 58,000 customers of the 131 largest natural gas and electric utility providers in the U.S. The sample design uses U.S. census data and strict quotas to ensure a demographically balanced sample of each evaluated utility’s customers based on age, gender, income, race and ethnicity. The Environmental Champion designation reflects consumer ratings of critical environmental attributes, including commitment to the environment and environmental causes, tools and programs to help customers save energy and green initiatives for building and vehicles.
According to Market Strategies, these environmental scores provide a key performance benchmark for utilities. When utilities score 700 or higher on the study, consumer demand doubles for the programs that help consumers save energy and support the environment. NJNG’s score of 707 (on a 1,000-point scale) ranks in the top tier among all natural gas utilities in the east region and exceeded the industry average of 675. It also led all utilities in the state.
