A Tribute To A Leading Voice for Sustainability


Jim Rogers (1947-2018) was a leading voice for sustainability. As CEO of Cinergy (a predecessor company of Duke Energy), he steered the company to produce its first-ever Sustainability Report in 2003. After merging with Duke Energy in 2006, he carried on that legacy as CEO of the new company.

His message in the 2003 report still rings true today: “Sustainability is about providing for the energy needs of our customers without compromising the potential of future generations to inherit a better, more productive society.”
