Environmental Performance

view the materiality matrix

Although our environmental efforts are built around compliance, we take additional measures and always strive for continuous improvement. In 2013, we achieved our best environmental performance in company history. AEP did not receive a single formal environmental enforcement action from any of the local, state or federal agencies that regulate our operations. This compares with two actions received in 2012. When agencies raise issues with us, we work with them to address their questions and concerns to their satisfaction. In addition, our Generation business unit completed the year with the best results on its Environmental Performance Index since the voluntary index was established in 2003, and AEP River Operations operated during 2013 without a single spill into the river. These results are attributed to a number of factors, but central to this success is a commitment by our employees to a high standard of performance.

Our Commitment to Zero Harm

At AEP, our focus on zero harm - zero injuries, illnesses or fatalities - means compliance with regulations is just a starting point. We are committed to continuous safety and health improvement.
