To Our Stakeholders:
As New England's largest energy utility, Northeast Utilities (NU) has a unique role to play in providing leadership for the region. We work to balance customer needs for reliable, affordable energy with our goal to create a clean energy future. Sustainability principles are the framework that guide our corporate strategy and direct how we develop and provide energy solutions for our customers in a manner that is good for people, protects our environment and rewards our shareholders. We believe our commitment to sustainability is helping NU and its companies make decisions that are good for today, and even better for tomorrow.
This website showcases the aspirations, achievements and challenges of our commitment to meeting the region’s growing energy needs in economically, environmentally and socially responsible ways. Significant issues and events of 2012 are highlighted as we describe our performance on key sustainability measures and our company's strategic direction.
We invite you to learn how NU runs its operations responsibly today as we help to create responsible energy solutions for tomorrow. Our website will be updated later this year as we highlight additional efforts we are undertaking as a responsible corporate citizen. With an outstanding workforce and strong commitments to the environment, to customers and to our communities, NU is well positioned for the future.
