Consumers Energy has released its 2018 Sustainability Report, an annual snapshot of the energy provider’s commitment to the triple bottom line of people, planet and prosperity.

“As Michigan’s largest utility, we’re uniquely positioned to be a driving force for good, “ writes Patti Poppe, Consumers Energy’s president and chief executive officer. “We care for our customers, because they’re our friends, families and neighbors. We invest in the communities we serve, because we live here too. And we take actions to preserve and protect our natural resources, because we enjoy Michigan’s beauty just as much as you.”

Consumers Energy has taken significant actions to care for the people it serves, its home state and the planet. The energy provider has set a goal of reducing carbon emissions by 80 percent and no longer using coal to generate electricity by 2040. Consumers Energy’s actions to date already have reduced its carbon intensity by 38 percent and reduced water usage by 35 percent, plus avoided over one million cubic yards of landfill disposal.
