We’re in a Healthy Relationship with the Environment

Sustainable energy companies must set bold corporate environmental goals, while complying with federal and state laws and regulations. We’ve developed an Environmental Management System (EMS) to remain on track and on task. It’s the framework we use to balance the energy and economic needs of our customers with environmental protection.

Environmental Policy is the core of our EMS. We maintain, and continually improve, an EMS that aligns with the International Organization of Standardization 14001 standards. These standards consist of environmental best practices to help organizations comply with applicable regulations, minimize environmental impacts and continually improve their processes to achieve compliance. Additionally, an external third party conducts annual environmental compliance audits. The policy is included in the company's Code of Conduct, which communicates our foundational corporate values.

Consumers Energy Environmental Policy

“The life of any business cannot be separated from its impact on the natural environment in which it operates. At Consumers Energy , we operate our business with a focus on long-term environmental sustainability and a fundamental commitment to leave our company, state and surroundings better than we found them. Our culture includes the core value of ownership, and we hold ourselves personally accountable to exceed our commitment to people, planet and prosperity. We take seriously our role to protect and enhance the environment while meeting the energy needs and preserving the economic well-being and quality of life of the communities we serve.”

As a result, we are committed to:

  • Govern and hold ourselves responsible for providing world-class performance and delivering hometown service as we meet our compliance obligations and interact with regulatory agencies

  • Enhance our environmental performance by maintaining, and continually improving, our management systems and assessment programs

  • Enhance the visibility of our programs by setting credible metrics, sharing the results with our executive leadership and celebrating our accomplishments

  • Protect the natural environment from potential harm and degradation as we understand and reduce, where practical, the environmental impacts of our activities including greenhouse gas emissions

  • Encourage social responsibility as our employees serve in our communities

  • Communicate and share our environmental values and policy with our employees and interested stakeholders
