Nexen Reaches Out to Communities

At Nexen, giving back to the communities where we operate is deeply rooted in our values. 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, work with disadvantaged and disabled young people in the UK, assist fishing families in the Gulf of Mexico or advance educational opportunities for students, we work alongside our communities to help them become stronger and more vibrant.

"ReachOut" - Giving, Matching, Helping

Nexen's "ReachOut" program brings strategic vision to the work we do in communities. The program has three pillars:

  • 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.
  • Helping: We recognize and encourage employee volunteering through volunteer days, volunteer grants and team-building events that help build stronger communities.

In 2012, Nexen invested $13.1 million in grants and donations to registered charities, not-for-profit and community organizations.
