Cleco completed a Materiality Assessment in 2021 to identify and prioritize Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) topics that matter most to its stakeholders.  This information was used to formulate Cleco’s ESG Framework and implementation strategies.

The stakeholder group consisted of Cleco employees, the president and CEO, board members, customers, both retail and wholesale, electric utility cooperatives, regulators and members of The Sierra Club, a national environmental organization.  This diverse group provided their feedback through either a live interview or a written survey. 

Message from CEO

All over the world, our stakeholders are expecting a renewed focus on sustainability and the establishment of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) goals to help preserve our natural environment, as well as continue to support the present and future generations of the communities we serve.

Events like the COVID-19 pandemic, extreme temperatures and natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes and floods have demonstrated how interconnected the world is on this issue and the need for corporate sustainability.

I’m pleased to report Cleco is amongst the many corporations incorporating sustainability into its operations by establishing a combination of ESG goals.  While we’ve always embraced sustainable business practices across the company, we’re accelerating efforts to protect the environment, manage social relationships, govern responsibly and remain accountable for it.  (full letter)
