Touting Duke Energy Corp.’s sustainability goals at a presentation an S&P Global Inc. conference, CEO Lynn Good said the company will spend close to $100 billion on its transition to clean energy over the next decade.
Good spoke Sept. 28 with Lindsey Hall, head of ESG Through Leadership — a title that refers to environmental, social and governance — for S&P. She promoted Duke’s commitments to reduce carbon emissions from 2005 levels by 50% in 2030, reaching carbon neutrality in its operations by 2050 and a separate net-zero goal for the more dangerous greenhouse gas, methane.
