Performance Data

EEI ESG/Sustainability Template

Alliant Energy is also participating in an initiative by the Edison Electric Institute (EEI) to provide investor-focused environmental, social and governance (ESG) sustainability-related information. The EEI template covers both qualitative and quantitative information, consisting of five focus areas: Governance, Strategy, Portfolio, Emissions and Resources. The quantitative template includes ESG metrics for Alliant Energy’s regulated electric utility and natural gas distribution operations.

The template was developed by EEI under the guidance of an ESG/Sustainability Steering Committee and an ESG/Sustainability Investor Group. Alliant Energy is a member of the EEI ESG/Sustainability Steering Committee.
