Danos Wins ESG Award

Danos Wins ESG Award

Danos has been honored for leading the way in its environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices as a recipient of Hart Energy’s 2021 ESG Top Performers Award.

“There is a growing focus on ESG in our industry right now, but we’ve been a top performer in this area for a long time. We’re honored to be recognized as an industry leader in ESG,” said CEO Paul Danos.

Danos’ commitment to protecting, preserving and restoring the natural environment is evidenced in its partnership with Natrx. Together, the companies are impacting coastal resilience and restoration by installing nature-based infrastructure solutions that reduce carbon emissions. The companies’ first joint project involved the placement of “Cajun Coral,” an innovative 3D-printed infrastructure, to establish a new reef in the Golden Meadow marshland area. The installation will provide more substantial protection from erosion for this vital coastal wetland.

Danos has also expanded its portfolio of projects to include work in the renewable energy sector. Most recently the company has done this through maintaining, repairing and installing solar panels, with projects in Arizona, Utah and Texas.

In the area of social responsibility, Danos is charting a unique path through the Danos Foundation. Funded primarily through employee donations and Danos corporate contributions, the Foundation has given more than $600,000 to help 80 organizations and more than 400 employees in need since its launch in 2017.

“The work of the Foundation is a manifestation of our company’s purpose, ‘Honor God. Solve big challenges for our customers and communities,’” said Danos.

The Foundation leverages three programs to provide support for communities where Danos employees live and work: GIVES, a grant-giving component, WORKS, a volunteer initiative, and CARES, which aids employees who have needs arising from unexpected events.
