Public Safety

We are committed to safety and offer comprehensive outreach programs that promote safe behavior. Our goal is simple—we want to prevent serious injuries or deaths, which can and do happen because of the inherent risks of electricity and natural gas. Most serious accidents happen because someone directly or indirectly contacts an overhead electric line, digs into an electric or natural gas line, or fails to respond safely to the warning signs of a gas or electric emergency. Just as we want our employees to return home safely every day to their families, we seek the same for others—including customers, communities, contractors and first responders.

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.
