AEP Sustainability - ESG Reports

Customer Emissions Report

In this summary, we provide the AEP system-wide and operating company specific greenhouse gas emission rates which can be used to calculate emissions associated with customer’s 2017 and 2018 energy use.

Supplemental GHG Emissions Data

AEP participates in an EEI-led stakeholder working group composed of electric companies and financial industry specialists in asset management, ESG/sustainability, investment banking, and buy-side and sell-side analysts to develop industry-focused and investor-driven ESG/sustainability reporting practices. The effort encourages voluntary reporting of ESG/sustainability information in both quantitative and qualitative formats and is the first and only industry-focused and investor-driven ESG reporting framework.

The EEI ESG/Sustainability Report template provides information in a measurable and consistent format for investors and customers to accurately assess long-term ESG/sustainability progress. Within the quantitative section, companies report sector-specific information, including data on a company’s portfolio, emissions, capital expenditures and resources. The use of these universal metrics provides comparable data. The qualitative section provides an opportunity for companies to share additional information and context about their ESG/sustainability governance and strategy.

AEP’s 2018 EEI ESG/Sustainability Report highlights the company’s emission reductions and clean energy strategy, which is focused on modernizing the power grid, expanding renewable energy resources and delivering cost-effective, reliable energy to its customers.

AEP’s 2019 Corporate Accountability Report has been prepared in accordance with the GRI Standards: Core option. The GRI Standards provide a voluntary reporting framework used by organizations around the world as the basis for sustainability reporting. We are also using the Electric Utility Sector Supplement for reporting on industry-specific information.

AEP’s commitment to transparency includes responding annually to CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) surveys on carbon, water and supply chain. We have been reporting to CDP for almost a decade on the carbon survey and have participated in the water survey since it began. These surveys are important to our stakeholders, particularly investors.

CDP is an international, not-for-profit organization providing a global system for companies and cities to measure, disclose, manage and share vital environmental information. To ensure easy access to our responses for our stakeholders, we are providing a three-year archive of our CDP reports.
