Message from Ian Robertson, CEO

Algonquin Power & Utilities is a leading North American diversified generation, transmission and distribution utility. Our vision is to be the utility company most admired by customers, communities, and investors for our people, passion, and performance. We are poised to deliver on this vision through a robust growth strategy, dedication to building a passionate workforce, and by operating our business in a responsible manner.

Throughout our 17-year history, we have grown to a family of more than 1,200 valued employees. Underlying our success are strong core values, a vibrant workplace culture, and ownership and empowerment within our regional operations. We owe our success to the dedication, care, and commitment of our employees in the communities where we operate.

Our company prides itself on acquiring and developing assets that create sustainable, long-term value. That is why we are issuing our first Corporate Responsibility Report using the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) framework – more specifically, the GRI G4 Guidelines – to guide us in measuring and communicating results as we strive toward even greater sustainability.

When our connection to the communities we serve is strong, our business thrives, risks are reduced, and returns are increased. Corporate Responsibility is about the relationship between stakeholder value and financial performance. We know our business must create value for shareholders, but it must also deliver value to our stakeholders: our customers, our communities, and our planet.

Every day we create value for our stakeholders, and we will continue to do so in a responsible manner.

Best regards,

Ian Robertson
