Though there is not yet a standardized process for corporate reporting on SDGs, we continually assess our business strategy and operations to identify opportunities for a greater contribution toward the SDGs. Our core business strategy and vision most directly aligns with SDG 7, designed to “Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all.” 

We deliver against this goal in multiple ways, including promoting competitive energy choice and offering renewable energy plans in all the retail markets in which we operate. Further, businesses can accelerate the transition to an affordable, reliable, and sustainable energy system by investing in renewable energy resources, prioritizing energy efficient practices, and adopting clean energy technologies and infrastructure. In 2018, NRG introduced Renewable Select to make procuring renewable energy simple, flexible, and convenient for business customers — unlike most renewable contracts in force today.
