Global Reporting Initiative Index

We strive for transparency in reporting our efforts toward continuous improvement and sustainability.

 

We use the GRI Sustainability Reporting Guidelines to help guide our reporting. This index is based on GRI Standards, and includes the G4 Electric Utility Sector Supplement. Indicators specific to the electric utility sector are denoted with EU followed by a number. In this index table, we have provided hyperlinks to NextEraEnergy.com, publicly available reports, other corporate websites and/or a brief response to each indicator. All information and data are for fiscal year 2017 (January 1-December 31, 2017) unless otherwise noted.

We consider the GRI Index to be an extension of our sustainability website, which enables us to provide more information to a variety of stakeholders while maintaining a succinct online report. While we are working toward meeting the GRI reporting protocols, for several indicators we currently only partially meet the recommended standard. For GRI metrics not listed, we currently do not track the data, consider the data confidential or the data is not material to our business.
