Message from the CEO

Sustainability is core to both our strategy and our culture

Andrés Gluski

President & Chief Executive Officer

Working with our communities, partners and customers, we have transformed our company to be a leader in carbon-free (and low carbon) energy solutions. We are committed to improving our carbon footprint through both near-term and long-term targets, and are leading the innovation of new technologies that empower others as well.

AES was one of the first companies to voluntarily help reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, starting with carbon offset and reforestation projects in the late 1980s. Today we continue the tradition of working proactively with all of our stakeholders to improve people’s lives in a responsible, clean and sustainable way.
