2011 Xcel Energy Corporate Responsibility Report

we are energized

Stakeholder engagement and trust are key elements to our company's success. We publish this report to share and disclose information important to stakeholders regarding our economic, environmental and social performance, as well as to foster better understanding of our business, industry and corporate culture. Xcel Energy’s first Corporate Responsibility Report was published in April 2005, and we have published a similar report each year since. For our 2011 report, we have changed the reporting format and moved the full report online. Our new online Corporate Responsibility Report is intended to provide a user-friendly format that makes it easier to access information about our company. We have supplemented facts and figures with stories that offer a better view inside Xcel Energy, our management approach and key initiatives—examples that demonstrate we are energized to serve our customers and local communities.

About the Report

We published our first corporate responsibility report (formerly known as the Triple Bottom Line report) in April 2005, with the contents covering the 2004 calendar year, and we have published a similar report in each following year. Our report is based on Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G3 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines, the most widely used sustainability reporting framework in the world. Additionally, we incorporate the GRI’s Electric Utilities Sector Supplement indicators wherever possible.
