2018 Sustainability Report

We publish an annual Sustainability Report that reflects our sustainability strategy, performance, and related metrics. Our 2018 report reflects the work we are doing to lead the transformation of our industry toward a clean energy future and to operate our business with excellence by focusing on customers, communities, and employees.  

Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) Materiality

In early 2018, we completed an ESG materiality assessment in line with best practice in order to identify the ESG topics that are fundamental to our long-term success. The assessment, which included internal and external stakeholder perspectives and was reviewed by the Edison International Managing Committee, identified 19 ESG topics as priorities. Many of the topics relate to our strategy and core operations. We recognize that the assessment reflects a single point in time and look forward to continuing engagement with our stakeholders on these issues.

What is a material ESG issue?

A "material" ESG is one that has the potential to impact long-term sustainability, based on the perspectives of internal and external stakeholders.

This is different from, but not related to, financial materiality, which is a threshold for influencing the economic decisions of investors.
