Sustainable Chugach

Sustainability is Chugach's business management philosophy and an integral part of the cooperative. Guided by Chugach’s vision to responsibly develop energy resources to build a clean, sustainable future, Chugach carries out its mission to provide safe, reliable, and affordable electricity through superior service and sustainable practices.

Chugach approaches sustainability using the triple bottom line framework of serving the planet (environment), the people (social), and the overall performance (governance) of the organization. Operating the electric utility in a sustainable manner is important to the long-term success of Chugach, to the health and well-being of its employees and members, the community, and the environment.
