NextEra Energy is being recognized as a “Change the World” company.
NextEra Energy announced that Fortune has recognized the company on its 2021 list of companies that “Change the World.” The Florida-based clean energy company landed at No. 35 on the annual list that recognizes companies that have had a positive social impact through activities that are part of their core business strategy.
“We are honored to be named once again by Fortune as one of the companies that is changing the world,” said Jim Robo, chairman and CEO of NextEra Energy. “We believe that no company in any industry has done more than NextEra Energy to reduce carbon emissions and to address climate change, yet every day we strive to do better. Our team of 15,000 talented professionals comes to work every day focused on how we can improve the way we do business so that we can deliver even more value to our customers and the communities we serve.
