Sustainability Plan and Progress

This sustainability plan reflects Duke Energy’s commitment to operate in a way that is good for people, the planet and profits. The plan expands on the company’s business strategy and values, and focuses on the areas that are most material from a corporate sustainability perspective.

The plan was initially developed in 2007 as a five-year plan and is refined each year. Unless otherwise noted, the goals were to be achieved by 2012. The progress we have made in achieving these goals is summarized here. More information on our progress can be found in the following pages of this Sustainability Report.

In 2009, we will be updating our sustainability plan and measures to reflect stakeholder input and our rapidly changing business environment
