At Tenaska, we’ve created a culture where our people are free to build the future of the energy industry on a decades-strong foundation of ethics, expertise and entrepreneurship. We understand that being a leader is about more than financial success – it’s about being a force for good in the communities where our people live and work.
It’s in our mission statement: To be an ethical, highly respected, socially responsible company that provides outstanding customer service and value in marketing natural gas and electricity and in owning and operating energy assets safely and reliably.
Operating ethically is as important to our company’s leaders as providing outstanding service and value. That may explain why we have relationships with customers and partners that stretch back many years, even as the energy industry undergoes rapid and continuous evolution.
They know what we know – that Tenaska puts a premium on conservative business practices, unwavering honesty, professional expertise and responsible commitment to the environment, safety and the communities where we operate.
Tenaska generating facilities are recognized in the industry for efficiency, state-of-the-art technology and superior emissions performance, and we continue to grow our renewables business. Our safety record is among the best in the energy industry and has been recognized numerous times for safety achievements. We strive always to be a good neighbor to our communities, building relationships with local leaders and residents, championing broad-based programs and supporting employees who donate thousands of hours of their time to volunteer activities.
These commitments are brought to life every day everywhere Tenaska does business across North America. They are woven into the fabric of our company, and they will shape its future.
