CEO Kelly Tomblin was hobnobbing last night with Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, the city's first black female and first openly gay leader. They both were attending the Federation of Women Contractors' 30th Anniversary Celebration, which honored Founder Loretta Rosenmayer and other long-standing members who have supported the FWC for 25 years or more.

The Chicago organization is commitment to advocating for women-owned businesses and women executives in the Construction Industry and has helped countless women find their voice and achieve their goals. #FederationofWomenContractors #WomeninConstruction

Intren Nicor Anode Crew

INTREN's Executive Vice President Matthew Turk recently visited crew members Yeheyes Tefera and Chris Yanny who were replacing anodes throughout Chicago for our gas utility customer. INTREN crews have replaced over 1500 on this multi-year contract, which began last year. An interesting tidbit is that we have electrical crews working on this project since anodes have an electric current.

As a charter supplier member of the Electric Utility Industry Sustainable Supply Chain Alliance (EUISSCA), we continue to measure our company’s carbon footprint and set reduction goals.

With our 2018 GHG Emissions Report now available, we are proud to report that even though our Greenhouse Gas Emissions grew in 2018 due to company growth and an increase in work hours, our emissions per work hour stabilized in four of six categories. This shows that our environmental initiatives are working, especially our recycling and grey water programs.
