Who We Are
Corporate Social Responsibility
At Vernadero, we are dedicated to corporate citizenship by integrating our long term economic, environmental and social dimensions into the way we successfully operate our business. Our environmental commitment is to reduce the impact of our operations which enables both Vernadero and our customers to function more resourcefully through improved health, education and environmental protection.
One of our main priorities is to give back to communities in which we live and work. In addition to supporting military and veterans organizations throughout the U.S., we provide direct social benefits to veterans and military families in need. We continue to leverage our social commitment through volunteerism, employee giving, and support of national and local non-profits.
Vernadero's 2016 social responsibility campaign supports the following organizations:
Wounded Warrior Project
A veterans service organization that offers a variety of programs, service and events for wounded veterans of the military actions following the events of September 11, 2001. It operates as a nonprofit 501(C)(3) organization with a mission to "honor and empower Wounded Warriors" of the United States Armed Forces, as well as provide services and programs for the family members of its registered "alumni," as its registered veterans are called. http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/
Disabled American Veterans
An organization chartered by the United States Congress for disabled military Veterans of the United States Armed Forces that helps them and their families through various means. The DAV is dedicated to a single purpose: empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. They accomplish this by ensuring that veterans and their families can access the full range of benefits available to them; fighting for the interests of America's injured heroes on Capitol Hill; and educating the public about the great sacrifices and needs of veterans transitioning back to civilian life. http://www.dav.org/
Military Order of the Purple Heart
Chartered by Congress in 1958, The Military Order of the Purple Heart is composed of military men and women who received the Purple Heart Medal for wounds suffered in combat. Although the membership is restricted to the combat wounded, they support all veterans and their families with a myriad of nation-wide programs by Chapters and National Service Officers. http://www.purpleheart.org
Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund
The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund is a leader in supporting the men and women of the Armed Forces and their families. Begun in 2000 and established as an independent not-for-profit organization in 2003, the Fund has provided close to $150 million in support for the families of military personnel lost in service to our nation, and for severely wounded military personnel and veterans. http://www.fallenheroesfund.org
