Sustainability Report

Delivering Sustainable Solutions: Yesterday. Today. Tomorrow.

TVA has focused on sustainability since our founding 90 years ago. That focus continues today … and will for the decades to come. TVA was built for the people, and our sustainable solutions help make life better for all.

Our FY 2022 Sustainability Report highlights our innovation and partnerships, which are making a difference today and laying the foundation for a brighter tomorrow.

What does sustainability look like to us? At TVA, we are:

  • Driving the development of leading-edge technologies and meaningful partnerships that will help us achieve our aspiration of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050
  • Protecting the unique biodiversity of our region and enhancing waterways, natural resources and cultural resources through our expansive stewardship programs
  • Supporting economic development projects in the region that total almost $48 billion in capital investment with 117,354 jobs created and 229,560 jobs retained in the past five fiscal years
  • Advancing our Environment Justice Program to help address disproportionate health, environmental, economic and climate impacts on disadvantaged communities
  • Strengthening our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility (DEIA) efforts and integrating DEIA into our business activities and decision-making processes
