Sempra has had a long-standing presence in Texas, and our commitment to the state has only accelerated. As we continue our growth, we are working to meet growing global energy demand while helping to shape a lower-carbon future for all. Today, we celebrate Texas's energy leadership by investing in our growing team at our Houston Center of Excellence.
A Central Location
Opening the doors to our new regional headquarters has helped fuel our energy behind Texas. Renowned as one of the energy capitals of the world, Houston is a fitting home for our Center of Excellence and an attractive location for recruiting and retaining top talent in the area. Situated near Memorial Park, the city's largest urban wilderness and recreational park, employees can enjoy one of Houston's most iconic areas all while showcasing our company's focus on innovation, technology and leadership.
Living Our Values in Texas
Sempra is building the energy networks of the future, today, and delivering on our core values - doing the right thing, championing people and shaping the future - which are foundational to how we drive our business forward.
Houston is rich with opportunities where we can collaborate with area organizations like the Greater Houston Partnership and its high-impact, mission-driven work to accelerate global solutions for a lower-carbon future while also caring for the communities in which we live and work. In times of disaster, we have responded by bolstering local organizations such as the Houston Food Bank, one of many local nonprofits we support and that are meeting the needs of Houstonians and helping the community to thrive.
We are also working to accelerate the adoption of next generation energy technologies that have the potential to expand the global reach of lower carbon energy, like Texas natural gas, while reducing emissions both here at home and around the world.
Day in and day out, we look for opportunities to champion people and Houston is exceptional in helping us realize our full potential in Texas. Among the organizations we are championing, the Greater Houston Black Chamber and the Houston Area Urban League are helping to create new opportunities for minority owned business to thrive and helping to advance leadership development, mentoring and equal opportunity in underserved communities.
