The 2020 Corporate Accountability Report marks AEP’s 11th integrated report and 14th year of reporting on our environmental, social, governance (ESG) and economic performance. This report gives a comprehensive view of AEP’s progress as a business and community partner to build a brighter and sustainable future together. This report reflects AEP’s longstanding commitment to transparency and is a robust representation of AEP’s past performance and future strategy. AEP’s 2020 Corporate Accountability Report has been prepared in accordance with the GRI Standards: Core option.
In 2020, AEP is also mapping our disclosure to the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) standards, which are a broader ESG set of metrics used by some of our stakeholders in the financial community. For the second year, we are also mapping our disclosure to the Task Force for Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD), which is a framework also used by many stakeholders and is solely climate-focused.
