Sustainability Commitment

"As a sustainable company, Alectra is committed to meeting today's needs and the needs of future generations by empowering our customers, communities, and employees, protecting the environment, and embracing innovation."

Alectra emerged from the consolidation of four leading Ontario electricity distribution companies in 2017. From its inception Alectra has been committed to sustainability. This sustainability statement affirms our commitment to delivering value to our municipal shareholders; providing our customers with safe, reliable and efficient electricity service and innovative energy solutions; and, protecting the health, safety, environment and well-being of our customers, employees, contractors, and communities.

As part of this commitment we pledge to reduce greenhouse gases.

Recently, Alectra committed to a 20% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2026, from our 2016 baseline. We continue to track annual energy consumption and associated emissions to contribute to a healthier environment.
