At Consumers Energy, we’re passionate about making life in Michigan better today while keeping an eye on the future – ensuring this is a great place to live for the generations ahead.

Today, Consumers Energy released our annual Sustainability Report. The report offers insight into our company’s work to serve two-thirds of Michigan’s residents and our Triple Bottom Line commitment to people, the planet and Michigan’s prosperity.

Consumers Energy has set ambitious goals to increase Michigan’s clean energy sources and protect our planet for decades to come. By 2040, we plan to:

  • Stop using coal to generate electricity.
  • Reduce carbon emissions by more than 90 percent.
  • And tap renewable sources for more than 40 percent of the electricity we supply to customers.

“At a time of unprecedented change in the energy industry, we’re uniquely positioned to define what it means to run a clean and lean company,” Patti Poppe, Consumers Energy’s president and CEO, writes in the Sustainability Report. “What does that look like as our employees work each day to achieve World Class Performance Delivering Hometown Service? The stories inside this report will give you a peak into the work we’re doing. You’ll find stories about the people who are making a real and positive impact for Michigan by protecting the environment we all cherish and powering economic growth and opportunity for the communities we love.”
