Dominion Energy is Leading the Transition to Clean Energy, CEO Says in New Report


RICHMOND, Va., Oct. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Dominion Energy today released its annual Sustainability & Corporate Responsibility report, which reviews the company's progress on environmental and social responsibility and operational initiatives in 2018 and establishes new commitments for 2019 and beyond.

"The people of Dominion Energy are leading the country's transition to clean energy," said Dominion Energy chairman, president and chief executive officer Thomas F. Farrell, II. "We are transforming everything we do to build a more sustainable future for our customers, the planet and our company. As we look to the future, one important priority will be addressing Gov. Northam's executive order on clean energy. That will be a major focus of next year's report."

The Sustainability & Corporate Responsibility Report outlines Dominion Energy's performance in areas of interest to stakeholders, from cybersecurity and nuclear safety to environmental justice.

The report describes climate change as "one of the most challenging issues of our time" and discusses how the company is addressing it by deploying thousands of megawatts of solar and wind power, pursuing industrial-scale energy storage and sharply cutting carbon and methane emissions. Such efforts are part of a broader company strategy to lower greenhouse-gas emissions across the 18 states where Dominion Energy does business.

"We intend to be one of the most sustainable companies in the United States," Farrell said. "If anyone harbors any doubts on that score, this report should put such doubts to rest."

The report explores the many ways the company contributes to the common good in the following key areas:

Clean Energy

Environment

Serving Customers and Communities

Employee Experience

"This report shows how deeply committed Dominion Energy is to the welfare of our customers, the environment, our employees and the communities where we work," said Carter Reid, Dominion Energy Executive Vice President. "We take that commitment seriously, and our performance shows it. Actions speak louder."

Dominion Energy is leading the nation in environmental and social responsibility through initiatives ranging from electric school buses to coal-ash removal and recycling, as well as through its superior track record of improved safety, low rates, veteran hiring and more. Its latest Sustainability & Corporate Responsibility Report ? the most comprehensive to date ? delivers on the company's dedication to openness and transparency by including sections on corporate governance and stakeholder engagement; social and workforce metrics; and indices that map to standards from the Global Reporting Initiative and the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board, as well as the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.
