About This Report

About This Report

This sustainability report is based on NRG corporate performance for all operations in calendar year 2016 and, where stated, "NRG" refers to NRG Energy, Inc., as well as its affiliates that include assets owned by NRG Energy, Inc. and NRG Yield, Inc.

This, our seventh annual sustainability report, was developed with guidance of the GRI Standards at the Core level, as well as the GRI Electric Utilities Sector Supplement, which together provide a framework and guidance for best-in-class sustainability reporting. This year's report is a transitional report from GRI G4 to the GRI Standards. NRG is a member of the GRI Gold Community and part of the Standards Pioneers Program, which supports our commitment to embed sustainability into our strategic decision-making and demonstrates reporting leadership in our sector. The report includes aspects of the GRI index for our sector that are deemed as priority issues to the company.

The scope of this report is primarily contained within the calendar year 2016, but some long-term projects and goals are discussed. NRG publishes a corporate sustainability report annually in both static and interactive PDF format. The NRG website provides visitors the latest news and events around the company's social, economic and environmental initiatives.
