At NiSource, we value the trust our communities place in us. That’s why as a company and as individuals, we strive to make a meaningful contribution to the well-being of the communities in which we live and work. We touch these local communities through partnerships and constructive dialogue, economic and infrastructure development, and charitable giving and employee volunteerism.

Each and every day, NiSource is interacting with our stakeholders, including customers, landowners, community groups and environmental groups, as well as federal, state and local agencies, among many others. We make it a priority to engage in a two-way dialogue on topics like safety, the environment, energy security, economic impact and energy efficiency.

Supporting Neighbors in Need

While Superstorm Sandy battered the East Coast with 80-mph winds and 13-foot ocean surges in late October 2012, more than 120 employees prepared to head east to support utilities hit by Sandy.

Eighty NIPSCO employees and more than 40 Columbia Gas employees helped restore electricity and natural gas service. Linemen, construction coordinators, service technicians and others volunteered despite knowing days would be long, conditions tough and holiday activities with family and friends would be put on hold.

Our pipeline group also donated $25,000 to support the efforts of the American Red Cross.
