Thousands of Ferrellgas Partners, L.P. employee-owners celebrated Earth Day with the completion of a month-long community service initiative. With the theme #FerrellFuelsChange, Ferrellgas Retail employees, Blue Rhino production and delivery personnel and corporate employees of both brands committed to initiatives designed to have a positive long-term environmental impact, such as:
“Through both our Ferrellgas and Blue Rhino brands, we deliver a green fuel,” said COO Tamria Zertuche. “Blue Rhino is also a green product, as we keep millions of tanks out of landfills each year through our exchange program. So Earth Day has always been special to us, but our employees sought to do even more this year in the many communities we serve. I cannot be prouder of their creative solutions and the impact these projects will have.”
These efforts are part of the broader Ferrellgas Century Project, through which the company has pledged its commitment to various Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) initiatives through the year 2039, which marks its 100th year in business. As part of that initiative, the company partners with Operation Warm to deliver winter coats to children in need, Operation BBQ Relief to fuel the preparation of grilled meals for victims of natural disasters, and the International Rhino Foundation to raise awareness of rhinoceros conservation efforts, support the protection of rhinos, restore wildlife habitats and more.
