Although the environmental considerations of generating and delivering electricity are diverse, AEP is committed to operational excellence and environmental stewardship to reduce our impacts. We have a good environmental compliance track record.
AEP’s carbon dioxide emissions have been reduced 39 percent from 2000 levels, and we will continue to reduce carbon dioxide emissions as we transition to more natural gas and renewable resources in the future.
We measure our success based on financial and non-financial performance. This includes the impacts our product has on the environment. We are committed to being environmental stewards as we build the next-generation utility.
AEP is less carbon-intensive than a decade ago. As we retire additional coal units and increase our use of clean energy, our carbon footprint will continue to shrink.
Between 2000 and 2016, AEP will have invested an estimated $8.5 billion in environmental controls, which has resulted in significant reductions in air emissions.
Water quality, availability, use and management are increasingly important sustainability issues for society and our company.
No aspect of operations is more important than the health and safety of people. Our customers’ needs are met in harmony with environmental protection.
