Leadership in Sustainability

Advancing toward a clean energy future

We seek solutions that reduce environmental impacts from our operations, protect the safety, health and well-being of our employees and partners; and build lasting value for all our customers and shareholders. Our customers, communities, employees and partners are firmly at the center of PGE’s sustainability efforts.

2023 resources and emissions at a glance

1. Percentages above represent 2023 resource mix from PGE's total system load, inclusive of wholesale volumes. The percentage of 2023 retail load, excluding wholesale sales, served by non-emitting resources is 32%. Refer to the appendix for additional information. 2. Represents utility-scale solar generated for Oregon retail load, does not include 274,678 MWh of customer rooftop solar resources. 3. Hydro amounts include purchases from Bonneville Power Administration, which may have an immaterial amount of emissions associated with them, per ODEQ rules. 4. Unspecified is purchased power for which a specific generating resource is not defined and could be any of the generation types (e.g., wind, hydro, gas).

Resilient energy ecosystem

As Oregon’s largest electricity supplier, we hold significant responsibilities to steward critical habitats, protect air and water quality and minimize environmental impacts in the places we serve electricity.

*These figures are preliminary and based on generated and purchased energy associated with serving retail customers within the state of Oregon, as required by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (ODEQ). Some or all of the renewable energy attributes associated with PGE's Basic Service Mix may be sold, claimed or not acquired.

PGE has ambitious targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from power served to retail customers within the state of Oregon.

See our timeline for reaching this ambitious goal.

Workplace diversity, equity and inclusion

Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion is an expression of our values and a business priority that makes us stronger as a company. All employees are expected to do their part by embracing others’ varied backgrounds, qualities, skills, perspectives and cultures and being willing to talk, listen and learn. We are committed to ensuring a positive work environment where everyone is treated with dignity and respect.

PGE employees in the same role, with comparable work experience at the same work location, continue to earn a near-perfect dollar-for-dollar pay.

What’s the gender pay gap? Imagine if you added up all the wages of men at PGE and did the same for women. The difference in the average salary is the gender pay gap. At PGE, we are ahead of the national average of 82 cents***. Nationally, one of the main reasons for the gender pay gap is men are more likely to be in senior level roles.
