The realm of voluntary sustainability reporting has seen significant growth over the past five years. An expanding number of organizations are requesting disclosure on environment, social, and governance (ESG) topics from the electric power industry, among many others. With the increasing interest in this area, companies may wish to strategically identify sustainability reporting venues that provide them with the highest value at the lowest cost.

EPRI’s Energy Sustainability Interest Group (ESIG) identified a need to understand current and anticipated sustainability reporting activities, including the value received and effort required. EPRI developed an electronic survey for ESIG in 2014, and 40 companies responded to the survey. This report contains an overview of the survey goals and methodology, presents the survey results, and discusses implications and insights arising from the results.

To EPRI’s knowledge, this is the first time that this type of information regarding current practices in sustainability reporting has been compiled for the electric power industry. Understanding the value of reporting as well as the frequency and trends of the industry’s sustainability reporting activities can better inform a company looking to determine its own approach to ESG disclosure.
