Power and Utilities

The power and utilities industries are central to global sustainability, particularly on the topics of climate change and inclusive growth.

Power and Utilities Overview


How We Work


The electricity and heat sectors account for approximately 40 percent of total greenhouse gas emissions, and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals include access to water and energy as keys to global development.

BSR works with power and utility companies at both the corporate and asset levels on sustainability strategies, corporate responsibility disclosures, environmental efforts, stakeholder engagement, and sustainable supply chains. In addition, we foster several collaborations between our industry members and corporate clients.
