Sustainable Future, Cleaner Environment
Committed to Net Zero
Millions of Americans depend on us every day for safe, affordable and reliable energy to heat and power their homes and businesses. They deserve a clean environment today and a healthy planet for future generations. We are delivering. By 2050, we will achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions across our electric and natural gas operations in all 18 states where we do business.
Dedicated to Protection
We are dedicated to protecting the environment, and work daily to minimize our environmental footprint, protect natural resources and improve the communities we share. View our Environmental Policy Statement for detailed information.
Cleaner air, cleaner water
Power stations fueled by clean, natural gas now generate more than 40 percent of the energy for our customers. Maintaining water quality is also important to our environmental stewardship efforts. We are leading the way on coal ash pond closures, safely treating and discharging water to meet all quality standards.
Protecting wildlife and habitats
Protecting the ecosystem around our facilities is an integral part of our commitment to the environment. Avian protection areas help protect native birds such as bald eagles and peregrine falcons. The Wings at Work program helps to foster a suitable habitat for butterflies, bees and birds.
