Now, more than ever, we have a responsibility to produce and deliver energy to our customers that’s reliable, affordable and increasingly clean. That’s where sustainability comes in. It’s more than a word at Duke Energy – it’s the key to our success in the 21st century.
The decisions we make today that affect our “triple bottom line” – people, the planet and profits – will determine our long-term prospects as a company. We see promising signs in our performance, but a lot of work remains.
- For a closer look at our progress on the road to becoming a more sustainable company, please review our comprehensive annual Sustainability Report.
- If you want a snapshot of our efforts, please see our Sustainability Plan and Approach.
- We use the Sustainability Reporting Guidelines established by the Global Reporting Initiative to help us measure our economic, environmental, and social performance.
- Duke Energy's continued leadership in sustainable business practices was recognized through placement on the 2012 Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index. This is the seventh consecutive year the company has received this honor.
