CFC’s members maintain a sophisticated system of electricity resources that covers 56 percent of the U.S. land mass. Since most of our members serve rural communities, we enable them to deliver the affordable and dependable electricity these communities need to power their economies.
CFC and the members we serve are engaged in sustaining our environment across multiple fronts—from the LEED Gold-certified building and 42-acre ecofriendly campus that serves as CFC’s headquarters to the many renewable energy projects we’ve helped fund for the electric cooperative network.
CFC contributes both financing and employee time to organizations that are integral to the fabric of Northern Virginia, which has been home to our organization for decades. The bulk of these efforts are led by CFC employees, including identifying various opportunities for community service and charitable giving throughout the year.
Our commitment to CFC members begins with our commitment to CFC employees—the people who each day demonstrate our values of service, integrity and excellence. Through investments in their training and continuing education, progressive work-life policies and opportunities to contribute their time and talents to social causes that matter to them, we put CFC employees in a position to succeed for our members, as well as themselves.
In this CFC corporate responsibility report, we share how CFC generates superior financial returns for our members and also the ways we help create a better, more sustainable world.
