Exelon measures sustainability performance as regularly and meticulously as we do every other area. The expectations we have for Exelon employees are high, clearly laid out, and supported by training and supervision. It all adds up to performance excellence.
While we are focused on actions that Exelon can take to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and how we can enable customers and communities, the greater backdrop is that all nations must work to transform their energy use towards zero-carbon outcomes to reduce the impacts of climate change or future generations.
