Entergy has long been a leader in environmental stewardship and the company continued that tradition on Wednesday by providing a $15,000 grant to the Pontchartrain Conservancy.
The grant contributions will go toward supporting the nonprofit’s mission to drive environmental sustainability and stewardship through scientific research, education and advocacy — all of which benefit the Pontchartrain Basin and surrounding communities.
“The Pontchartrain Conservancy team is incredibly thankful for Entergy’s continued partnership of Storm Sweep,” said Kristi Trail, executive director of Pontchartrain Conservancy. “Together, we have built up our communities to come together to clean and prepare ahead of hurricane season.”
In conjunction, Entergy employees and volunteers met Wednesday at the Bonnabel Boat Launch in Metairie to pick up debris and plant mulch and pine straw, among other activities, as part of Storm Sweep, a monthlong cleanup and hurricane preparedness event hosted by the Pontchartrain Conservancy and sponsored by Entergy Louisiana. Storm Sweep provides residents in southeast Louisiana an opportunity to clean up debris, which improves drainage and water flow and mitigates flooding.­­­
“We’re always willing to lend a hand to our community partners,” said Phillip May, Entergy Louisiana president and CEO. “It’s made even more rewarding when those community partners’ goals align with ours to serve as stewards of the environment. Not only do we work here, but we live here as well. And when this state thrives, particularly when it comes to the environment, we all thrive.”
In 2021, Entergy contributed more than $1 million­­ to partnering organizations through our Environmental Initiatives Fund. These grants marked the 21st consecutive
