Biodiversity & Stewardship

We practice conservation, promote biodiversity on our land and recognize our role in helping our neighbors and communities do the same.

Commitment to Biodiversity

Utilizing natural resources wisely is vital to meeting our customers’ needs and protecting those resources for future generations. 

Beyond the intrinsic value of biodiversity, a balanced and healthy ecosystem is integral to our commitment to provide clean, safe, reliable, and affordable energy to our customers.

  • We partner with communities, conservation organizations and natural resources agencies to help imperiled species and restore habitat.
  • We seek to adhere to all environmental laws and regulations with compliance, and ongoing voluntary conservation, serving as the foundation of our biodiversity commitment.
  • Where appropriate/able, we practice the mitigation hierarchy and consider measures to avoid, minimize, and/or mitigate impacts on biodiversity.
