Alabama Power
Sustainability Report

Sustainability has been a part of our business from the beginning.”

– Stephanie Cooper




Sustainability. At its very core, it’s about creating something that lasts. Something dependable, reliable and thriving. For Alabama Power, sustainability is powering our state and the people who live here. It starts with prioritizing the needs of our customers and working to meet those needs safely and responsibly. That’s been our approach for more than a century through a series of efforts, each a plus toward our impact on the communities we serve.


While 2020 was a year defined by uncertainty, our team navigated the challenges with strength and resiliency. We adapted our business operations to keep employees safe during the global pandemic, supporting customers who rely on us, helping with the state’s recovery and planning for its future. The racial justice movement added focus to our efforts for lasting, meaningful change in equity and inclusion in our company, state and nation. And, the historic hurricane season reaffirmed our ongoing commitment to providing reliable service to customers.


While corporate responsibility and environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues have received increasing attention by the global community, Alabama Power was built on the pillars of sustainability. The focus on ESG aligns with the foundation of our business – doing our part to meet the needs of our customers, employees and communities. For us, sustainability is collaborative, intentional and incremental – every day, every week, every year. Everything we do to make our company and state better is a plus – toward creating a more prosperous Alabama.
