Net-Zero by 2025
At Franklin Energy, we have been supporting energy and water conservation in communities across the nation for years, and our formalized sustainability efforts follow established protocols related to environmental, social, and governance standards.
Our four core focuses:
Ensuring safety, health, & security
When it comes to both clients and our own employees, our key priorities are safety, health, and security, as well as customer privacy. Our safety record is a testament to our strong safety culture, where we conduct regular trainings on driving, job site behavior, cyber security, and more.
Championing our people
Championing our people means ensuring that our employees, suppliers, and partners are treated with respect and given the tools they need to advance our shared goals and values. Leveraging an inclusive and welcoming culture is critical to how we operate as an organization, and it is equally important to our clients.
Enabling the clean energy transition
Our business is helping our utility partners and their customers save energy as part of the transition to a net-zero future. Over the lifetime of the water- and energy-efficient measures we installed in 2020, our clients and utility customers will save 20 billion kWh of electricity and 1.5 billion therms of natural gas. Together, these savings result in a net reduction of 1,600,00 metric tons of carbon dioxide.
Building strong communities and local economies
In our partnerships with utility clients, we not only transform the ways customers use electricity, natural gas, and water; we create jobs and economic activity that build healthier communities and boost local economies. We also remain cognizant of our supplier impact and the way their technologies and services affect local communities.
In 2020, our 1,300 energy efficiency experts served over 3.6 million customers.
Our programs in local communities created economic activity worth $1 billion and created 4,800 new jobs.
Our work through our client utilities in 2020 resulted in the reduction of 1,600,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide.
"While we’ve been helping our clients achieve their sustainability goals for decades, we’re excited to embrace a formalized process that helps us look internally at our own environmental footprint. With over 1,200 passionate employees working toward a singular goal in a supportive environment, there’s no limit to what we can accomplish."
