A Message from our Co-Chairs
As a regulated utility, government policies impact nearly every aspect of PPL’s business operations. From setting a national climate policy to siting energy infrastructure projects, these crucial decisions are all made by government entities at the state and federal level.
In order to ensure company views are well represented throughout the legislative process, many PPL employees choose to participate in People for Good Government (PGG) – PPL’s voluntary, nonpartisan, employee-supported political action committee.
Through PGG, PPL can engage in the political process and build relationships with the lawmakers setting the policies on major issues of importance to the company. PGG contributions create opportunities to educate policymakers and exchange ideas that can lead to improved legislative outcomes and enhance PPL’s ability to meet our core mission: providing safe, affordable, reliable, sustainable energy to our customers and superior long-term returns to our shareowners.
PGG is a member-driven organization. It is governed by a steering committee made up entirely of PPL employees and all contribution decisions are approved by allocations committees. These committees are made up of PPL employees with several seats elected directly by PGG members.
With major public policy decisions being made every day, it’s more important than ever for PPL to remain involved in the political process. PGG offers employees an ideal environment to stay informed and ensure that perspectives on issues important to the company are shared with our elected officials.
