Fortis Releases 2019 Sustainability Update

We are taking actions to tackle the most pressing global sustainability issues.

  • Governance
  • Environment
  • Sustainability

Today we released our 2019 Sustainability Update, which includes the latest key sustainability indicators for Fortis and our operating utilities.

In this latest document, we have broadened our reporting with new indicators related to our people, natural gas operations and our use of water. We have also added detail on our efforts to advance the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Our focus on energy delivery, and not electricity generation or natural gas extraction, underpins the sustainability performance of Fortis. With 93% of assets dedicated to energy delivery, our impact on the environment is limited in comparison to more generation/production intensive businesses.

Sustainability Performance Highlights:

  • Consolidated safety and reliability performance in 2018 surpassed comparable industry rates in Canada and the U.S.
  • We are near gender parity with the Fortis Board of Directors now comprised of 42% female directors.
  • We continue to focus on energy delivery with 93% of assets dedicated to the transmission and distribution of energy delivery.
  • $13 million was donated by Fortis and our utilities to the communities we serve in 2018.
