The future of power is changing and FirstEnergy is changing with it. We're doing that by installing smarter technologies and utilizing cleaner, renewable resources.
FirstEnergy remains committed to protecting the environment while delivering safe, reliable electricity to six million utility customers in the Midwest and mid-Atlantic regions. In keeping with our balanced, long-term approach, we are continually looking for ways to minimize the impact of our operations on the environment. Through plant retirements, asset sales and our transformation to a fully regulated utility, we have significantly reduced the size of our generation fleet, which has contributed to our significant progress on our aggressive goal of reducing CO2 emissions by at least 90% below 2005 levels by 2045.
Corporate Responsibility Report
FirstEnergy's Corporate Responsiblity Report, published in November 2019, is aligned with the five pillars of our mission statement and includes extensive detail on our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG)-related efforts to achieve sustainable performance.
The report addresses our work to reduce the environmental impact of our operations, including progress on our carbon dioxide reduction goal, as we continue to build, strengthen and modernize our transmission and distribution system. The report also describes FirstEnergy's high standards for corporate governance and our work to improve lives in our communities, while providing safe, reliable electric service to our customers.
EEI ESG Template
On September 3, 2019, FirstEnergy published the Edison Electric Institute’s (EEI) environmental, social, governance, and sustainability-related (ESG/sustainability) reporting template. FirstEnergy is participating in this EEI-led initiative for the second year in a row to help provide the investment community with more uniform and consistent ESG/Sustainability data and information.
