About This Report
This integrated report presents Entergy’s 2019 economic, environmental, and social performance. The report relies upon guidance issued by the Global Reporting Initiative, the world’s most widely used sustainability reporting framework. Our 2019 reporting is in accordance with the GRI standards, including the Electric Utility Sector Supplement. Further detail is provided in the online index and performance data table, found under Environmental, Social and Governance Disclosures, available at https://www.entergy.com/sustainability/esg/. We continue to review our reporting and disclosures and make improvements as appropriate to offer greater transparency on Entergy’s performance to our stakeholders. For example, we partner with the Edison Electric Institute on a reporting template that helps EEI member companies provide more uniform, consistent metrics and supporting information for investors. The template can be found under Environmental, Social and Governance Disclosures, available at https://www.entergy.com/sustainability/esg/.
This report includes 2019 data from Entergy’s primary business segments, which operate entirely within the United States. Assurance of financial data in this report comes from our internal controls over financial reporting, which Entergy management assesses annually using criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission in Internal Control – Integrated Framework. Deloitte & Touche LLP has issued an attestation report on the effectiveness of Entergy’s internal control over financial reporting as of Dec. 31, 2019.
Our 2019 greenhouse gas inventory is reported in accordance with international standards (ISO 14064-1) and was verified by an independent third party in accordance with international standards (ISO 14064-3) in early 2020. The GHG inventory is available at americancarbonregistry.org and entergy.com/environment.
