SAN DIEGO, Oct. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Forbes and JUST Capital have named Sempra Energy (NYSE: SRE) to the Forbes JUST 100 list, which is intended to recognize companies that are doing right by all their stakeholders, including employees, customers, communities, the environment and shareholders.
"Sempra Energy's vision to deliver energy with purpose comes to life through our stakeholder-centered approach and leading with environmental, social and governance principles," said Lisa Alexander, senior vice president of corporate affairs and chief sustainability officer for Sempra Energy. "It's an honor to see Forbes and JUST Capital recognize Sempra Energy as a 'most just' corporation working to create long-term sustainable value for our stakeholders."
"Now more than ever, business leaders have the chance to spark lasting systemic change within their companies and across society," said Forbes Senior Editor Steven Bertoni.

By striving to meet the needs of all stakeholders, JUST 100 leaders demonstrate that profits and purpose go hand in hand.
