Our Commitment

Hoosier Energy’s unique mission is rooted in the cooperative principles to serve and pursue innovative solutions that improve the quality of life for our 18 member systems and the communities they represent. In today’s energy climate, that means prioritizing environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives. Hoosier Energy is building an energy ecosystem that prioritizes reliable, affordable and sustainable solutions while incorporating technology innovation and strong partnerships to create value for all member cooperatives.

Hoosier Energy’s ESG strategy is driven primarily by the needs of our key stakeholders. We place equal emphasis on each element of ESG, and we have the data to prove it, with reporting standards aligned with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)and Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB). As the energy industry evolves, we intend to adapt our approach and refine our portfolio to best suit our members and their strategic priorities.
