To better serve customers and investors, the Edison Electric Institute (EEI) launched an environmental, social, governance, and sustainability-related (ESG/sustainability) reporting template, with the goal of helping EEI’s member electric companies provide investors with more uniformity and better consistency for ESG/sustainability metrics. 

In order to assess the current ESG/sustainability reporting practices, EEI assembled a broad working group comprised of institutional investors who specialize in asset management, ESG/sustainability, investment banking, and buy-side and sell-side research and electric company officials from various disciplines, including accounting, environment, ESG/sustainability, finance, treasury, investor relations, and legal.

The electric companies participating in the pilot will publish their 2016 data in December 2017. For those interested in the information, it typically will be posted on the investor relations or sustainability sections of the electric company’s website.
