This week, PG&E issued its annual online Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability Report, which takes a comprehensive look at the steps the company is taking to turn around its safety and operational performance and meet its long-standing commitment to the environment, its employees and the many diverse customers and communities it serves.
The report reviews PG&E’s performance and progress in 2010, a year marked by many difficult challenges—none more consequential than the fatal natural gas pipeline explosion in San Bruno.
“Despite the difficult challenges of the last year, PG&E has not lost sight of our sustainability goals and commitments,” said Steve Kline, chief sustainability officer for PG&E Corporation.
In fact, the report points to a number of successes, including that PG&E was once again named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index, one of only five U.S. utilities to earn that distinction.
Covering a broad range of areas—from public and employee safety to environmental performance, diversity and inclusion, customer energy programs and community involvement—the report highlights how PG&E is working to weave sustainability more deeply into its business. It also invites feedback from the company’s stakeholders and shares the critical role those stakeholders—customers, policy-makers, environmental and community groups, investors, suppliers and many others—will continue to play in PG&E’s sustainability journey and as the company strengthens its gas and electric operations.
