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.
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.
FirstEnergy published a Climate Report in April 2019 and plans to publish a Corporate Responsibility Report in the 4th Quarter of 2019.
