Community

Our Commitment

     

    Be RESponsible is a company-wide initiative that identifies, creates, and implements our corporate social responsibility goals. These efforts are overseen by a cross-disciplinary team of RES employees. Active projects we are currently engaged with include, but are not limited to:

     

    • Community outreach and volunteering
    • Energy, water, waste, and carbon footprint tracking of RES operations
    • Offsetting RES’ natural resource footprint
    • Planning and development of our first Corporate Social Responsibility Report
     

    A Few Recent Highlights

    • Plant Nursery Donations and Volunteer Planting

      RES donated trees, plants and volunteers supporting a wetlands exhibit at the Louisiana Children’s Museum, plus a monetary donation for an urban restoration project in San Ramon, California.

    • Ecological Research and Education

      We have active partnerships with several universities supporting their research and natural sciences education programs. We support Louisiana’s Nicholls State University in their research of the impact of newly created marsh terraces, sponsored by BHP and built by RES, on marine life and coastal resiliency. We also support the Texas Native Seed Program, which is part of the Texas A&M University-Kingsville’s research institute, the Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Center. This program identifies the best native seeds for restoration plantings in Texas. The East Texas Native Seeds Project, part of this research, is using the Bois d’Arc Lake Mitigation Project as a research site, and RES is providing both monetary and site coordination support.  RES has also worked closely with the University of Richmond, as we completed a stream restoration through the middle of their campus, to maximize how the site could support ecological education for their students.
