Energy remains the lifeblood of the economy, but our industry is undergoing a major transformation. To continue successfully powering lives and communities, we need to embrace change as never before.
This environment provides an opportunity to innovate – and sustainability remains central to our plan to create a smarter energy future for customers.
2017 proved Duke Energy is doing just that. We unveiled our 10-year vision for our company, and we executed it while delivering safe, affordable, cleaner energy and preparing for what’s next.
As this report shows, we delivered strong results. Here are a few highlights:
Our company is linked with serving the public. That’s predicated on our belief that we can do well for our investors while doing good for the environment and those who have a stake in our company.
For more than a decade, we have provided an update on our environmental stewardship through this report. In March, we also issued a new Climate Report, detailing our ongoing efforts to mitigate risks from climate change, reduce emissions and plan our future investments.
What we do at Duke Energy matters far beyond providing reliable natural gas and electricity. Our approach to sustainability pushes us to do more – to leave a positive, long-term impact on the environment and communities we serve.
As I look ahead, I remain as confident as ever in our vision for a smarter energy future, our focus on sustainability and the strategy we’re executing to get there.
