Basin Electric releases first-ever Sustainability Report

Basin Electric has released its first-ever Sustainability Report.

“Basin Electric has a distinguished track record of environmental stewardship, sound cooperative governance, and being a good citizen through investments in our communities and teammates,” said Todd Brickhouse, Basin Electric senior vice president and chief financial officer. “A number of our financial and other stakeholders encouraged us to document these accomplishments. At first our institutional humility made us reluctant to tout our own achievements, but as we considered the idea of a sustainability report we realized it was both an appropriate way to celebrate our proud history in these areas and a good business practice to adopt.”   

The report highlights Basin Electric’s dedication to the people in its membership and the communities in which they live, as well as environmental stewardship and sound cooperative governance for more than 60 years. It also conveys the cooperative’s ongoing commitment to sustainability, and the efforts made to continue to build and improve upon that commitment in an affordable, reliable, and environmentally responsible way. The report includes four sections that focus on key areas: reliability and sustainability, leadership in environmental stewardship, putting people first, and serving our consumer-owners.

The Sustainability Report is available now on our website and will be mailed out with the 2022 Annual Report this coming spring.
