2017 Corporate Sustainability Report

A message from Pat Kampling

At Alliant Energy, we proudly deliver the energy solutions and exceptional service that our customers and communities count on – safely, efficiently and responsibly.

Sustainability means doing the right thing with an eye toward the long run. Our sustainability strategy looks into the future, promoting responsible company growth through the economic, social and environmental decisions we make today. Because it touches on all five of our Core Values, sustainability factors into every one of those major decisions.

That’s why sustainability is built into how we provide energy. Our long-term strategic plan continues to include carbon reductions and the expansion of renewable energy. But we also recognize that our company’s growth depends on the support of strong, thriving communities in which we serve.

And we know that investing in the personal development and well-being of our employees is invaluable. All of these sustainable goals are part of “powering beyond,” which will transform, grow and optimize our business well into the future.

The stories you will find in this report provide a glimpse into how we sustainably operate every day. Sustainability is a journey and what you read is all about traveling our road forward. We embrace this journey with confidence and optimism about what we can achieve together, as a collective effort with the businesses, communities and customers we serve.

I hope you enjoy learning about the many ways Alliant Energy is showing our commitment to sustainability through our actions.

Sincerely,

Patricia Leonard Kampling
Chairman, President and CEO
