Our Workplace

Learn about the many ways Alliant Energy is showing our commitment to sustainability.

Achieving the highest level in Wisconsin’s sustainability program

We were recognized as a 2016 “Green Master,” the highest level in the Green Masters Program, established by the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council. The program assesses Wisconsin businesses interested in improving and being recognized for their sustainability initiatives.

Our company was evaluated on sustainable actions in nine areas: energy, climate, water, waste management, transportation, supply chain, workforce, governance, and community and educational outreach. We join a select group of 35 Wisconsin businesses as “Green Masters,” an honor that distinguishes the top 20% of applicants.

While many companies are still working to achieve a balanced representation of women on their boards of directors, our company has accomplished it.

Gender diversity in the boardroom

According to a national study by Catalyst, a non-profit trying to expand opportunities for women and business, Alliant Energy is one of a handful of S&P 500 companies that have reached gender parity on their board. The same research showed that women on boards of S&P 500 companies average 19.9%.

Students from our University Challenge offer fresh ideas on battery technologies, electric vehicles expansion and microgrids.

Training the energy workers of tomorrow

In early 2017, Alliant Energy donated $100,000 to Moraine Park Technical College for a Gas Utility Technician program. The college is setting the stage for the new program at its Beaver Dam, Wisconsin campus alongside a $2.3 million energy education center.

The center is scheduled to begin construction in spring 2018 and graduate its first class of gas utility technicians in 2019. Investing in this program and its students helps build a talent pipeline for our company and industry. The Gas Utility Technician program is expected to provide critical training for skilled workers in natural gas, propane and gas utilities needed over the next decade.
