We recognize the benefits
of reducing global greenhouse gas emissions and are taking action to reduce our
own carbon footprint through solutions that seek to protect the environment
while minimizing the economic impact to families and businesses.
Climate change has
influenced our strategy through its potential impacts to the financial
condition, operations and cash flows of each of our subsidiaries. Our
repositioning as primarily a transmission and distribution company minimizes our
exposure to government regulations.
Climate change also has
influenced us because of the potential damage to electrical infrastructure
resulting from physical risks such as extreme weather. This requires us to
create new strategies to help avoid these issues.
An important part of our
approach is partnering with state regulators to advance state energy reduction
and renewable energy goals, as well as, to develop effective environmental
policies. Learn more in our Environmental Stewardship & Sustainability Fact Sheet.
