Ameren Corp released two new reports that provide stakeholders with information on its operations, environmental justice principles, sustainable energy investments, energy assistance, and economic development initiatives.

The first is the 2022 Sustainability Report. It highlights the company’s investments in energy infrastructure and demonstrates the value delivered to customers. Further, it details Ameren’s integration of clean energy and its plans for continued expansion in Missouri and Illinois. In addition, it covers the growth of financial assistance programs and initiatives for families, its philanthropic efforts, the expansion of its economic growth and community development initiatives, and its sustainability governance practices.

The second is the 2022 EEI-AGA ESG/Sustainability Report. This report is based on the Edison Electric Institute (EEI) and American Gas Association (AGA) ESG and sustainability reporting template. Ameren is a pilot member and uses this report to provide quantitative data on several topics, including energy generation, resource utilization, capital expenditures, and safety.

“We know achieving our sustainability goals goes beyond making progress on environmental issues and involves addressing the needs and expectations of our communities,” Gwen Mizell, Ameren’s chief sustainability and diversity officer, said. “Ameren’s numerous efforts to support diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I), are crucial facets of a well-rounded sustainability strategy. These reports provide further insight to all our stakeholders, including our millions of customers, to show how we’re living our vision, Leading the Way to a Sustainable Energy Future.”

The full reports can be viewed on Ameren’s investor website.

“We’re continuing to make improvements on all four areas of Ameren’s sustainability strategy: environmental stewardship, social impact, governance, and sustainable growth,” Marty Lyons, president and CEO of Ameren, said. “Not only will this help us reach our goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 based on direct emissions from Ameren Missouri’s and Ameren Illinois’ operations – we’ll do so in a responsible fashion.”
