Sustainable Growth & Operational Excellence

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.

Carbon & Climate

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.

Corporate Emissions

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.
