The pace of change in the energy industry continues to accelerate, driven by major trends including decarbonization, digitalization and decentralization. At Emera, our proven strategy enables us to continue to be a leader in this change, finding new ways to keep delivering for our customers, investors, communities and the environment.
We’ve been focused on safely delivering cleaner, affordable and reliable energy for more than a decade. And increasingly, we’re finding ways to give customers greater energy choice and control. We’re investing in cleaner energy, new technologies and modernized infrastructure. And we’re working with regulators, policy makers and industry peers to help shape the constructive regulatory environments needed to meet evolving customer expectations, while ensuring the pace of change is always balanced against affordability.
In this light we see sustainability as fundamental to our strategy. And it’s also at the heart of our culture. It drives our key environmental priorities to use less coal and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, while increasing our investments in renewables and lower-carbon energy. It reinforces how we deliver social value, through our commitments to safety, to inclusion and diversity, to strong relationships and communities, and to being an employer of choice. And it’s supported by strong governance practices across our business, from our Board of Directors and executive leadership teams through to our entire team.
We’re proud of the progress we’re making, and we’re pleased to share it with you in this 2018 Sustainability Update. But we know there is always more to be done – not only because it makes good business sense, but also because it’s the right thing to do.
We want to keep hearing your thoughts on the work we do and the information that’s important to you. Please feel free to get in touch at CEO@emera.com.
