BALTIMORE (July 27, 2022) – Constellation, the nation’s largest producer of carbon-free energy and a leading supplier of energy products and services, announced today that it is fulfilling its commitment to provide its commercial customers with 100 percent and industrials customized data to help them measure and reduce their impact on carbon emissions.
The customer reports are part of Constellation’s industry-leading 100/100/100 climate commitment, which includes:
- Achieving 95 percent carbon-free electricity by 2030 and 100 percent by 2040
- Achieving a 100 percent reduction in emissions from operations by 2040
- Providing 100 percent of business customers with personalized data to help them reduce their carbon footprint.
Constellation currently produces 10 percent of all clean energy on the U.S. grid with its zero-carbon fleet of nuclear, solar, wind and hydro plants.
“It’s not enough for us to eliminate emissions from Constellation’s business—we must help our customers do the same if we are to truly lead the transition to clean energy,” said Jim McHugh, chief commercial officer of Constellation. “An essential step for businesses on this journey is to help them better understand their energy consumption and the resulting carbon emissions. These customized reports will serve as an invaluable tool to educate our customers and prompt them to take additional action to reduce the carbon impact of their operations.”
The reports (see sample) will present customer-specific information on Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions for facilities receiving energy and/or gas from Constellation.
To make it easier for customers to visualize and understand their impact on the climate, the reports compare the number of miles an average passenger vehicle must travel to equal the customer’s carbon emissions. The reports will also highlight ways customers can transition to clean energy, reduce their carbon footprint and become more sustainable.
The reports are being released at a time when business leaders and local governments are increasingly focused on doing their part to combat climate change. About 60 percent of Fortune 500 companies, 600 local governments, and 25 states have already announced climate and energy goals or action plans. The federal government also plans to procure 100 percent carbon-free electricity by 2030 on a net annual basis, with 50 percent carbon-free on a 24/7 basis.
Constellation will begin distributing the reports in late August, with all of its commercial and industrial customers – including three-quarters of the Fortune 100 – expected to receive their customized reports by the end of 2022.
Among its other climate initiatives, Constellation has partnered with Microsoft to develop a 24/7/365 carbon-free energy matching technology that will help customers achieve true zero emissions, compared to current practice of the annualization of renewable energy certificates and credits. The product will match the customer’s energy needs with local carbon-free energy sources on an hourly basis.
