NRG Energy's 2017 Sustainability Report

The voluntary reporting landscape is evolving rapidly. We aim to actively participate in enhanced disclosure of key issues and work to achieve transparency as we create opportunities for progress. Our investors, customers and other stakeholders tell us that sustainability reporting is a critical ingredient of productive partnerships. Incorporating environmental, social and governance issues in our reporting tells a clear management story and helps inform long-term decision-making.
