Sustainability Plan and Progress

This sustainability plan reflects Duke Energy’s commitment to operate our company in a way that is good for people, the planet and profits. It recognizes and addresses the key economic, environmental and social opportunities and risks facing our industry today and in the future. The plan expands on the company’s business strategy and values. It does not focus on every sustainability initiative at Duke Energy – and there are many.

Instead, we focus on the areas that are most material from a sustainability perspective. We listen and incorporate feedback from our stakeholders into this plan and review it each year to reflect new developments. Unless otherwise noted, our intent is to achieve the goals in this plan by 2012. The progress we have made so far is summarized here.

A detailed description of our progress against these goals can be found in the following pages of this sustainability report.
