Stakeholder Alignment

Successful execution of our strategy begins with obtaining stakeholder support for long-term decisions and for large investment initiatives, prior to taking action. To avoid excessive risk, it is critical that we reduce regulatory and legislative uncertainty before making long-term critical decisions or large capital investments. Stakeholder alignment is achieved by:

  • Delivering operational excellence
  • Proactively pursuing environmental leadership by reducing emissions and expanding renewable energy in a cost-effective manner
  • Providing value for our customers by modernizing our infrastructure and reducing our environmental impact at a reasonable cost, while offering customers choices through energy efficiency and renewable energy programs
  • Proactively taking actions to ensure public and employee safety related to our generating plants and natural gas and electric systems

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.
