NRG is targeting a 50% reduction in GHG emissions by 2025, from our current 2014 baseline, and netzero emissions by 2050. Our goal covers NRG’s direct emissions (scope 1), its purchased energy (scope 2), and the employee business travel portion of scope 3.
We recognize that we must live our values to serve our customers and communities — and one of NRG’s Power Values is Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. NRG’s safe and supportive environment elevates every employee’s unique background and voice. Here, we engage different perspectives to solve complex challenges — together.
NRG invests in the well-being of its employees. We provide programs that holistically support physical, emotional, and financial wellness, allowing our colleagues the opportunity to take control of their well-being and focus on what matters most to them for a healthy, secure future.
One of our 2021 company goals was to redefine NRG's workplace of the future by transforming how and where we work. We established a cross-functional group to determine the ongoing COVID-19 response and office protocols for the new working normal.
Helping companies in various industries across the U.S. and Canada transition from ‘sustainably minded’ to ‘sustainably achieving,’ NRG’s customer-first approach heeds the call for global action around climate initiatives such as the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) Net Zero Standard.
In 2021, we showed the power of our people and dedicated the year to reconnecting with each other and our communities. With our return to the office, positiveNRG served as the motivation behind what we do, how we operate, and how we stay connected with one another.
To help identify and pursue potential opportunities to decarbonize our business and better serve our customers, we engage with various stakeholders, non-government organizations, and community and industry groups, among others.
We are committed to leading our sector in sustainability transparency and disclosure, and we follow the leading globally accepted frameworks and standards to provide key information to all our stakeholders.
