US energy giant publishes first CSR report
National Grid, the international energy company, has published its first US corporate social responsibility report.
As well as detailing the energy provider's efforts at sustainability in 2007, the report also details the role it has playing in the communities it serves and its part in investing in a skilled workforce.
At the same time it features a series of commitments for future sustainable procurement and energy efficiency in the future, including a move to 100 per cent renewable energy for internal usage by 2010 and investment in improving system reliability.
Tom King, National Grid executive director of electricity distribution and generation, said: "We want to be completely open about how we aim to operate responsibly in everything we do, and this report gives our publics in the US a great view of that."
"We can and are looking to have a positive impact on the communities we serve and act responsibly as a company," he added.
National Grid is responsible for delivering electricity and gas to more than three million people on the US East Coast.
