Sustainability strategy


We strive to weave sustainability principles into the fabric of who we are and how we operate, and we embed our sustainability strategy within our corporate business strategy, making the two interdependent.


PEOPLE, PLANET AND PERFORMANCE We describe the foundation of our approach to sustainability as People, Planet and Performance. With this approach, we aim to prioritize social, environmental and economic concerns across our enterprise, considering our responsibilities in these three areas for our long-term planning and decision-making.


One of our goals is to create a culture of sustainability throughout all levels of the organization. We employ a decision-making process that takes a holistic approach when considering the impact of business recommendations. It helps employees gain a greater understanding of how sustainability applies to their work and how they can take action.


We also include sustainability as a driver for resource allocation, future investments and procurement practices. Beginning in 2016, our process for the approval of all capital investments requires the evaluation of sustainability issues alongside traditional business considerations, such as customer value and financial benefit.


To drive continuous improvement, we have implemented governance processes, identified material issues affecting our industry (see right) and established key metrics, which we measure and report on annually. We believe transparent communication through regular reporting and other engagement activities is critical to create accountability and increase dialogue with stakeholders regarding our sustainability efforts.


MATERIAL ISSUES


In 2013, our management-level sustainability advisory group identified 16 material issues based on an Electric Power Research Institute materiality assessment of our industry. These environmental, social and economic issues have the potential to affect the long-term success of PGE and/or our stakeholders. To ensure we prioritize them appropriately, we’ve built them into our sustainability framework.


In 2016, we will conduct our own survey of stakeholders, also known as a materiality assessment, to get feedback about what's important to them in terms of our sustainability activities. We will then update our list of material issues as appropriate to inform our strategy and reporting in future years.


We welcome your feedback on this report at Sustainability@pgn.com.
