The 2020 finalists, chosen from some 300 nominated entries from over three dozen countries, were recently announced by program host S&P Global Platts, the leading independent provider of information and benchmark prices for the commodities and energy markets.

Suburban Propane is a finalist for the Targeted Corporate Social Responsibility Award, a nomination earned behind the strength of their SuburbanCares initiative which has continued to provide fuel and meal donations where they are most needed throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Nominees were chosen based on their ability to demonstrate a positive influence on surrounding communities, a commitment to fostering teamwork and building relationships while executing their campaign, and a communication program that effectively conveyed the impact of these efforts.

"We are so incredibly proud to be recognized as a finalist in the S&P Global Platts Energy Awards for our community efforts as a result of our SuburbanCares initiatives," said Nandini Sankara, Spokesperson, Suburban Propane. "We wish all of the finalists the best of luck and are humbled to be considered a socially-responsible company. We place a very high priority on our SuburbanCares platform in making a difference in the lives of those we serve in our local communities across the nation." 

The SuburbanCares initiative, a core pillar of the company brand, represents Suburban Propane's dedication to their service communities beyond the scope of their energy needs. The resolve to fulfill this mission became apparent during the initial peak of the coronavirus outbreak in the United States. Whether it was delivering fuel to keep temporary hospitals running in New York City (a multi-agency effort recognized by Governor Andrew Cuomo), providing meals to frontline healthcare workers at hospitals across the country, or keeping food tents and pantries powered in small towns in New England, Suburban Propane employees have consistently displayed their devotion to the people most in need of support during this global crisis.
