Submitted by Entergy Corporation
NEW ORLEANS, May 7, 2021 /CSRwire/ – Entergy Corporation (NYSE: ETR) today announced its 2020 Integrated Report, an annual overview of the company’s performance and a detailed look at its continuing actions to build the premier utility and power life for its customers and communities.
“The energy we supplied in 2020 was essential and life-sustaining,” said Leo Denault, chairman and CEO of Entergy Corporation. “Our customers rely on us to energize their homes and businesses while we help power the health and well-being of our communities. Everything we set out to accomplish is firmly grounded in our commitment to deliver long-term, sustainable value to all our stakeholders. We believe that is more important now than ever.”
The report, titled “Forward Together,” reflects on 2020 as an extraordinary year in which Entergy’s 13,400 dedicated employees delivered critical services for its customers and communities in the midst of unprecedented challenges: the COVID-19 pandemic, social and political unrest and the largest restoration workforce mobilization in the company’s history during a record-breaking storm season. The report also details the company’s commitment to providing reliable, affordable and increasingly clean energy, while creating a more sustainable future for Entergy’s customers, employees, communities and owners.
Key indicators of our 2020 performance include:
This is the eighth year that Entergy has published an integrated report. Entergy was the first U.S. electric utility to voluntarily combine its annual shareholder report with its sustainability report in 2013. Today, the company is one of only a few leading U.S. companies to consolidate these reports into a single integrated report that documents the company’s advancements in energy and innovation, sustainability and environmental stewardship, and social responsibility and community investments. This report also details how Entergy’s strategies are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which were adopted in 2015 as a blueprint to achieving a better and more sustainable future for all.
