Our sustainability commitments provide a framework for PPL to grow and innovate in a responsible, reliable way that benefits customers, shareowners, employees and society as a whole.
Our current sustainability programs, performance metrics and initiatives are presented annually in our sustainability report. Our report presents our views about the company’s direct and indirect impacts, risks, challenges and opportunities.
We continue to take steps to minimize our impact on the environment and transform the way we generate electricity and incorporate renewable technology. To reconfirm this commitment, PPL announced a goal to reduce the company’s carbon dioxide emissions 70 percent from 2010 levels by 2050.
PPL also issued a scenario-based climate assessment, which describes the company’s approach to climate change and steps the company is taking to manage climate-related risks and capitalize on new opportunities.
PPL has a long-standing involvement with efforts to restore the peregrine falcon population. Read about our efforts and check out our live cams to see if the falcons are nesting.
The Keystone Solar Future Project is an example of the innovative thinking PPL Electric is using as new on-site generation technologies transform the utility environment. The project will set up a “distributed system platform” that leverages the company’s existing smart grid technology to plan for, monitor and control distributed energy resources such as solar panels.
