Working Together for a Sustainable Future

At Hawaiian Electric Industries sustainability is central to our strategy. As a company with all of our operations in Hawaii, our ability to deliver long-term value for our stakeholders is inextricably linked to the sustainability of our environment, communities and economy.

We’re committed to achieving 100% renewable energy by 2045 and helping our state make its economy carbon neutral by that same year. We’re well on our way. In 2018, 27% of energy sales across our five-island electric utility system were from renewable sources. Our utilities have contracted for solar plus storage projects that are expected to help us reach 50% renewable energy across our system by 2022 and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50% compared to 2010. We’re focused on collaborating with our stakeholders to achieve a sustainable, 100% renewable energy future for our state.

This year’s report reflects Hawaiian Electric’s participation in a voluntary initiative coordinated by the Edison Electric Institute (EEI) to provide investors and stakeholders with more uniform and consistent environmental, social, governance and sustainability-related (ESG/sustainability) metrics. This voluntary reporting template includes quantitative information on key ESG/sustainability topics, including our generation portfolio, capital investments, emissions, human resources and natural resources.
