Portland General Electric (PGE) has released its fifth annual Sustainability Report, which includes PGE’s sustainability results from the past fiscal year, stories from across the company highlighting achievements, areas for growth and where the company is focused.
“We’re committed to helping customers and the communities we serve achieve a clean energy future,” said Maria Pope, president and CEO, PGE. “Our latest sustainability report provides a transparent accounting of where we are today – the achievements and the challenges – and demonstrates the strong foundation we have in place as we take on this transformation.”
As highlighted in the report and outlined in PGE’s vision, the company intends to reduce greenhouse gas emissions on its system by more than 80% by 2050, consistent with its proportionate share of the state’s 2050 greenhouse gas reduction goal.
PGE’s vision is unique among utilities, because it takes an economy-wide perspective, identifying both its own decarbonisation goal and the role it can play in helping the state meet its 2050 goal.
The report includes metrics and stories categorised by PGE’s five pillars of sustainability:
Customer Value: Keeping customers at the center of everything the company does
Environmental Footprint: Protecting natural resources
Quality Workforce: Powering a safe and engaged workforce
