We continue to make progress on our goal of being net-zero by 2050.

We are committed to positively affecting the communities where we live and work. Our responsibility to reduce the environmental footprint of our operations helps us ensure the long-term reliability, competitiveness, and success of NRG. These efforts include providing sustainable energy solutions to customers, optimizing generation, reducing our carbon footprint, leveraging cleaner energy technologies, and supporting the advancement of our employees through health, safety, and professional growth initiatives.


Achieving real progress toward sustainability and carbon-reduction goals drives us—along with helping our customers to do the same. Still, outside recognition is always gratifying.
