Our Sustainability Commitments

Our seven 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.

The corporate sustainability committee, which includes senior leaders throughout the corporation and its business units, is responsible for developing sustainability strategy, providing oversight and establishing the priorities and performance metrics.

The sustainability strategy, commitments and priorities are reviewed by the corporate leadership council and presented to the board of directors.  PPL’s Board of Directors has designated its Compensation, Governance and Nominating Committee with oversight of PPL’s practices and positions to further ESG performance and sustainability.
