Our Sustainability At-A-Glance

In 2018 Entergy found new ways to elevate our business performance and create sustainable value for all our stakeholders.

message from CEO

An estimated 25% of our customers live at or below the poverty level. Our low-income customer assistance initiatives aim to help qualifying customers achieve economic self-sufficiency, become better educated on managing their bills, and receive bill-payment assistance.

Committed to helping those who need it most

Our organizational goal is top decile employee safety performance. Our comprehensive safety programs are delivering results. In the last four years, our employee recordable accident index has reduced by 44%.

Safety: Targeting top performance

Entergy operates one of the cleanest large-scale generation fleets in the country, according to the 2018 Benchmarking Air Emissions Report. Among the 20 largest privately or investor-owned power producers, Entergy ranks as the fifth-largest power producer while maintaining the fourth-lowest CO2 emission rate. Entergy also ranks fourth in the production of virtually zero-emitting energy among that peer group.

A cleaner fleet

In 2001 we were the first U.S. utility to voluntarily commit to stabilizing CO2 emissions, and we’ve extended that commitment twice since. Our current pledge: to reduce our CO2 emission rate to 50% below year 2000 levels by 2030. We are also the only U.S. utility on a Dow Jones Sustainability Index for 17 consecutive years.

A legacy of environmental leadership

Entergy employees and retirees are committed volunteers to non-profits in their communities. Last year they donated ~112,000 hours in volunteer time.

100K+ hours
for others

For the 11th straight year, Entergy was named one of the nation’s Top 10 utilities in economic development by Site Selection magazine for directly supporting projects that resulted in nearly $4.25 billion of capital investment and the creation of 4,688 new jobs in our service area.

A strong community partner

In 2015 we launched a
5-year, $5 million workforce development and education initiative to address education and skills gaps in our local communities and fuel their economic development.

$5M for
better skills

We’re investing ~$900 million in advanced metering systems that will provide our customers with faster outage restoration, enhanced customer service and cost savings — giving us more tools to help them save money.

Better connections,
bigger savings

In 2018 our philanthropic investments to help more children, families and communities realize their dreams totaled more than $18 million. Our areas of greatest focus: education/workforce development, poverty solutions/social services and community improvement and enrichment.

Keeping wild places
wild – and clean

In 2018, as we provided power and natural gas safely, reliably and efficiently to customers, we also made significant investments in our generation, transmission and distribution infrastructure to benefit our customers.

More reliable,
more resilient
