In August 2017, the city of Houston and other surrounding cities were devastated by Hurricane Harvey and the damage caused by its immense flooding and wind. EDPR’s North American headquarters, located in Houston, launched an aid and collaboration campaign not only for its employees, but also for all affected communities.
Houston-based employees were offered a number of benefits including housing assistance, disaster pay, and additional paid volunteer time. The company has also made several monetary contributions to date to help the community rebuild.
Furthermore, EDP Renewables North America formed a Hurricane Recovery Management Team comprised of Houston-based employees who are developing and leading company initiatives in the community to respond to Hurricane Harvey.
