About This Report
Cleaner Energy Future
We are committed to providing investors and other stakeholders with transparent information about the company’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) priorities and key issues, while also highlighting relevant data and examples. This website demonstrates our progress on ESG-related issues that are integral to our long-term performance.
In response to stakeholder feedback, we redesigned and reorganized our Corporate Sustainability Report into a web-based structure with a dedicated ESG Data Center. Our reporting follows the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) framework and has been prepared in accordance with the GRI Standards: Core option.
We disclose information using the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) standards in the ESG Reports section of this website. To better serve our stakeholders, we have also incorporated both the American Gas Association’s (AGA) and Edison Electric Institute’s (EEI) ESG Template 3 into our annual sustainability reporting activities.
CenterPoint Energy’s ESG Council, which is led by the Vice President of Environmental and Corporate Sustainability and the Vice President of Investor Relations and Treasurer, provided guidance on the development of the report. Formed in 2018 and composed of leadership from CenterPoint Energy’s businesses and functions, the ESG Council identifies, evaluates and recommends strategic directions and opportunities that promote ESG objectives in alignment with our company’s strategic plan. The council also provides oversight of the company’s Net Zero and carbon goal implementation and carbon risk management. Along with input from the ESG Council, various business units and work groups provided data for this report based on topics that are important to the company, as well as the programs and initiatives that address these opportunities.
