On behalf of our entire team, welcome to Emera’s 2017 Sustainability Update.
We’re excited to share the work we are doing to build a brighter, more sustainable future.
The energy industry is changing at an unprecedented pace. At Emera, we see opportunity in this change. This is rooted in our proven ability to think creatively about our business and the solutions we develop for our customers. And it’s about more than just creative thinking. We are constantly innovating and executing with discipline to deliver for our customers, shareholders, communities and the environment. This is what we call our creative energy.
It’s creative energy that enabled us to imagine and build the Maritime Link - the longest subsea electricity cables in North America, connecting the island of Newfoundland to the North American grid for the first time in history. It’s creative energy that is helping us lead the most rapid transformation to renewables in Canada. And it’s that same creative energy that led us to develop an aggressive transformation plan that will deliver the highest percentage of solar generation in Florida.
Our team is strong and focused on safely delivering cleaner, affordable and reliable energy to customers everywhere we operate. We’re listening to our customers, we’re adapting to evolving needs and we’re embracing innovation to offer more choice and control. And we’re looking after each other and reinforcing our safety systems and culture to ensure everyone at Emera goes home safely every day.
This update also celebrates our relationships with our customers, shareholders, communities and partners. We understand that strong relationships make us better.
We look forward to continuing work together to achieve a sustainable energy future.
