125 Years of Shared Value – A Report on Avista’s Operations
A lot of things can change in 125 years, but Avista’s commitment to innovation, collaboration and providing safe reliable power is as consistent today as it was in 1889. With the launch of our sixth annual report on our operations – 125 Years of Shared Value – our stakeholders can see how the work we do today and our legacy of delivering shared value remains a core component of our operations.
Avista’s purpose is to improve life’s quality with energy – safely, reliably, responsibly. The Shared Value Report bring this to life by providing a comprehensive look at how our business operates and the work that goes into making this purpose a reality for our stakeholders. The content highlighted in the report demonstrates how the work we do across the company to not only brings energy to homes and businesses, it serves as a means for creating value and making a lasting impact on those we serve.
As sustainability reporting and our reports have evolved over time, there has been an increased focus on materiality – what our stakeholders have told us is relevant to them. We have listened, and this year you will see the material topics called out throughout the report with icons. Our intent is that the icons will make it easier for readers to find the information they want.
You’ll also see stories that demonstrate shared value and our commitment to our customers, communities and the environment.
