The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a universal set of goals, targets and indicators that United Nations member states – and, increasingly, businesses – are expected to use to frame agendas and policies surrounding development.
NRG's core business most closely aligns with:
• Goal 7: Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy
• Goal 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
Imagine a world where trees, wildlife and open spaces weren’t on the decline. A world where we all made a conscious effort to preserve natural habitats. By conserving communities and educating future generations, we can bring a greener earth from imagination to reality.
Today we publish our 2016 Sustainability report and mark another year filled with firsts for NRG in the U.S. power industry. As corporations and states continue to demand lower-carbon energy – facilitated by rapid technology advancements – the 2016 NRG Sustainability report showcases our commitment to transparency while highlighting the milestones we achieved as we continue to deliver value to our stakeholders.
