Statement from Badar Khan, president, National Grid US

(June 3, 2020) – “Recent events across the nation – sparked by outrage at the deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and so many others – are stark reminders of the racism and discrimination that have divided our nation for centuries.

National Grid stands with our customers, communities and employees in their pursuit of justice and lasting change. As a utility, National Grid serves people of all races, ages, religions, sexual orientations, genders, abilities and backgrounds. We employ a workforce that includes all communities and we are stronger for it.

As a company, we are recommitting to our efforts to create an inclusive environment for our employees, our customers and the communities where we live and work.

Black lives matter.”
