Sustainability Council

NiSource’s Sustainability Council is a cross-functional group of manager- and director-level employees, established in 2011 to support the implementation of the NiSource Sustainability Strategy and promote NiSource’s sustainability efforts. The Council acts as a liaison among nearly every major division of NiSource and our in-house sustainability experts, our executive team, our Board of Directors and external advisors. A main focus of the Council in 2014 is to assist with the development of NiSource’s materiality study, which will guide our sustainability reporting going forward. This effort is in line with the goals of the Global Reporting Initiative and other major international guidelines.

Goals of the Council include:

  • Further integration of sustainability practices into projects and operations
  • Greater engagement of NiSource employees in sustainability efforts
  • Improved measurement of sustainability performance
  • Greater external stakeholder outreach, reporting, benchmarking and accreditation
