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.

We invite you to learn more about our sustainability journey by accessing the links and information available from this page..
