Sempra Infrastructure’s Environmental Champions Initiative is designed to promote environmental stewardship and sustainability by providing grants to schools and community-based organizations bringing transformative changes to schools and local organizations. Grants ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 were awarded to support projects that benefit habitat preservation, community enhancement, environmental education, and sustainability.

"We believe that protecting and preserving the environment goes hand in hand with responsible energy development," says Kelly Oden-Prasser, director of external affairs at Sempra Infrastructure. "The Environmental Champions Initiative allows us to work alongside local schools and organizations to make a positive impact in our communities through collective action and partnerships."
