NiSource has released its 2010 Sustainability Report, which provides an in-depth look at the company’s progress toward building “sustainable value through customer-focused energy solutions, environmental stewardship, and community involvement.”

“We’re committed to building a legacy of sustainable economic growth, social responsibility and environmental stewardship,” NiSource President and CEO Robert Skaggs Jr. said in a statement released on Monday. “This report highlights efforts across all our businesses to generate sustainable value for our customers—and all of our stakeholders—through a balanced, disciplined, and forward-looking approach.”

Highlights of the report:

•NiSource invested more than $900 million in capital improvements, “ensuring the safety, reliability and operational efficiency of the energy delivery infrastructure its customers rely on,” the statement said.

•NiSource exceeded its carbon intensity reduction target by investing in infrastructure and innovation of operations. At the end of 2010, its greenhouse gas intensity had been reduced by more than 8 percent from 2001. The company’s goal was a 7 percent reduction by 2012.

•NiSource companies provided a record level of more than $6.8 million in charitable donations to local, regional, and national organizations in 2010.

“In the end, our goal is simple: to build a cleaner, more efficient and affordable energy future,” Skaggs said. “Going forward, we will continue to focus on and improve our sustainability efforts and identify areas for continuous improvement.”

NiSource’s 2010 Sustainability Report—available at www.nisource.com—was produced using the Global Reporting Initiative G3 Reporting Guidelines, a leading industry framework for measuring corporate sustainability initiatives and progress. “NiSource self-declares—supported with third-party assurance from CH2M HILL—that this report meets the requirements of GRI Application Level B+,” the statement said.
