Entergy Earns Prestigious Awards for Climate Report
Entergy was named the winner of a Bronze Stevie® Award during the 18th annual American Business Awards®. Entergy was recognized in the "Other Publications" category for its 2019 report, "Climate Scenario Analysis and Evaluation of Risks and Opportunities," where the company announced new steps it is taking to deliver cleaner energy solutions and promote a lower carbon future for all its stakeholders. The report was produced almost completely with internal Entergy resources, from statistical analysis and writing to design and layout.
The American Business Awards is an organization focused on recognizing outstanding achievements among the nation's business community. More than 3,600 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every U.S. industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories.
The "Stevies" is nicknamed for the Greek word meaning "crowned." Judges for the Stevie Awards described the report as a "valuable work and report in addressing climate change risks through reducing carbon dioxide emissions" and "both writing and imagery are relevant, appealing and clear."
