PAR Hawaii

Providing energy security for Hawaii consumers is a 24/7 job. It requires vigilance in monitoring global events, technical prowess, operational and logistical excellence, and keeping a pulse on the evolving energy needs of the state.

Businesses, residents, and visitors rely on Par Hawaii to meet the relentless demand for fuels: gasoline for vehicles, fuel for first responders and critical services, jet fuel for flights to the continental U.S., Asia, and the Pacific Islands, and fuel oil to generate electricity that feeds the electric grid to power everything from EV charging to computers. It never stops.


Par Hawaii welcomes the responsibility to meet our state’s energy needs, but keeping energy affordable is challenging. Par Hawaii must source crudes from around the world to make the fuels Hawaii needs. When crude prices go up, fuel prices correspondingly increase. Since it takes energy to make energy, Par Hawaii’s refining costs also escalate.

Building Energy Resilience

Energy resiliency is a priority for Par Hawaii and the state. By investing $90 million to repurpose a processing unit at its Kapolei refinery, Par Hawaii is projected to start producing renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuels by 2024.

“Our $90 million investment is an investment in our state,” said Eric Wright, Par Hawaii’s president. “We’re glad to play a pivotal role in the transition from fossil fuels to reduce Hawaii’s carbon intensity and help everyone decrease their contribution to climate change.”

Locally Produced Renewable Fuels

The new unit will process plant-based oils, either imported to Hawaii or from locally-grown plants. Par Hawaii is partnering with numerous agricultural organizations such as Pono Pacific, and field studies are now underway to cultivate oil-producing plants such as camelina.

“Our shift to clean energy won’t happen overnight, but it’s part of an exciting journey,” Wright said.

Central Pacific Bank

Why do people like banking at Central Pacific Bank? It comes down to CPB’s commitment to exceptional service in-branch and online.

Rooted in a rich legacy dating back nearly 70 years, CPB was founded by Nisei veterans who had trouble getting financial services from other local banks. This history of being there for everyone in Hawaii drives CPB to go above and beyond for their customers in every possible way.

CPB branches are designed to offer an epic customer experience. Customers feel comfortable and welcomed from the moment they step in the door. And CPB team members actually take the time to build strong relationships with their customers and understand their unique needs. This allows them to create tailored solutions that meet the specific financial goals of each customer.

Building relationships is an important element of exceptional service. But in this day and age, it’s also vital to offer state-of-the-art digital banking solutions. CPB delivers. Their online and mobile services are top-rated, and their user-friendly platforms provide a comprehensive set of features that make managing finances easy, even while on the go. They have the trust of their customers, earning the bank national recognition from publications, including Forbes and Newsweek.

Finally, CPB actively contributes to the communities they serve. Whether it’s giving back to local organizations and charities, supporting small businesses and entrepreneurs, or developing initiatives aimed at improving the well-being of others, CPB is dedicated to helping all of Hawaii’s ohana reach their full potential. That’s the spirit of aloha in action. That’s CPB.

A Culture of Ownership

Founded in 1888, Swinerton is a national construction and construction management firm with 20 offices nationwide. We have been a trusted partner of Hawaii since the 1960s with our tight-knit Honolulu-based office that engages in local internal and outreach events to promote collaboration and cohesion within our company and our industry.

One of the most integral parts of our Swinerton culture is the fact that we are 100% employee-owned. This means that we act in the best interest of our fellow employee-owners in everything we do, both regionally and nationally. As a division, it is important to create a sense of place for our employee-owners and create a culture within our Swinerton teams that reflects the positive impact we leave on our communities. Together, we aim to truly be a community builder dedicated to the local communities we serve.

Swinerton ensures our commitment to building sustainable and strong communities also extends to our recruitment efforts.

Credit unions were originally established to provide financial services and support to communities that were underserved and unserved by traditional banks. This idea of people helping people was the foundation on which Hawaii State FCU began.

Cetra Technology

It may surprise you to know that Hawaii is one of the 10 riskiest states in the country for malware hits according to a 2023 SonicWall Cyber Threat Report.

“Even the smallest businesses have data that is valuable to hackers. Customer and employee information, and financial material all can be sold on the Dark Web or used in phishing schemes,” said Michael McMurdo, CEO of Cetra Technology. “A malware attack can be devastating but many businesses think they cannot afford a staff of cyber experts or expensive software. The real question is: how can you afford not to protect your business?”

Helping You Qualify for Cyber Insurance

Only 17% of small businesses have cyber insurance according to Kaseya Cybersecurity. Many businesses do not have the basic security tools required to qualify for insurance.

An Integrated Approach

Today, cyberattacks happen not just by computer but also by air conditioning systems, video camera systems and even a digitally-controlled fish tank!

“It is becoming increasingly important to take a 360 degree look at your company’s security—both physical and cyber,” McMurdo said. “Only through a coordinated and well thought-out design can you feel comfortable that your company’s data, assets and people are secure.”
