Sustainability

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.
  • As part of its efforts to promote sustainability, Duke Energy has made a commitment to innovation and leadership. What's that mean? Find out in this video featuring Lynn Good, Duke Energy's vice chairman, president and chief executive officer.
  • If you want a snapshot of our efforts, please see our Sustainability Plan and Goals.
  • We use the Sustainability Reporting Guidelines established by the Global Reporting Initiative to help us measure our economic, environmental, and social performance.
  • Duke Energy was included on the 2014 Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index for the ninth consecutive year. This is a tangible recognition of Duke Energy's continued sustainability commitment and leadership.
