SUSTAINABILITY AWARDS



Sustainability Achievement Award

The Target Rock Sustainability Achievement Awards are bestowed annually in April to a small group of utilities with exemplary sustainability practices across all three Triple Bottom Line elements (Economic, Environmental, and Social) as determined by Target Rock’s annual sustainability assessment process. The Overall Sustainability Achievement Award is given to a single utility each year, the leader of leaders, the one company with the highest overall sustainability score in the industry. Best in Class Sustainability Achievement Awards are conferred to the top three utilities in each market capitalization category – large cap (>$10 billion), mid cap ($2-10 billion), and small cap (<$2 billion) – at the time of the assessment.

Sustainable Utility Leadership Award

Concurrent with and based on the results of the annual sustainability assessment process the Target Rock Sustainability Utility Leaders Index is re-balanced to include only those utilities with industry-leading sustainability performance. These companies are the industry’s Sustainable Utility Leaders.

2013 Award Winners

The 2013 Overall Sustainability Achievement Award was presented to Sempra Energy on March 19 at the 2013 Energy Central EnergyBiz Leadership Forum in Washington, DC. This is the second year that Sempra has earned the top spot. In addition to placing first in overall sustainability performance in 2012, Sempra's shares posted the highest total return performance (32%) in 2012 and the company is a perfect example of the positive relationship between good sustainability practices and shareholder returns.
