American Municipal Power, Inc. (AMP) and its member communities are committed to the balance of being responsible corporate citizens, governmental entities, employers and environmental stewards, while maintaining a supply of cost-competitive, reliable electric power. The best way to achieve balance is through the consistent application of sustainability as a business practice.
In 2005, the AMP Board of Trustees adopted Environmental Stewardship Principles to help guide the organization. The principles were revised as Sustainability Principles and re-adopted in 2011, and updated in 2018 and 2021, to expand the scope of the principles to encompass broader corporate sustainability goals and objectives, thus better reflecting the organization’s definition of sustainability as a business approach that creates long-term member value by embracing opportunities and managing risks derived from economic, environmental and societal developments.
