Our Clean Energy Vision
Successful execution of our strategy will enable us to achieve our clean energy initiatives.
Reduce our fossil fuel generation carbon dioxide (CO₂) emissions by 50% from 2005 levels
Reduce our electric utility water supply by 75% from 2005 levels
Electrify 100% of our company-owned light-duty fleet vehicles
Eliminate all coal from our generation fleet

We will continue to review and update our Sustainable Energy strategy and Clean Energy Vision, based on future economic developments, evolving energy technologies and emerging trends in the communities we serve.
Our one million tree goal

Our aspirational net-zero goal
Alliant Energy aspires to reach net-zero carbon dioxide (CO₂) emissions by 2050 for the electricity we generate. In addition, we plan to continue exploring opportunities to eliminate and fully remove our CO₂ emissions from the environment. Our path will be guided by future policies, economic developments, evolving energy technologies and emerging trends in the communities we serve.
As we move forward, we will maintain sight of the fact that the energy we generate must remain affordable, safe and reliable. Through continued partnerships with customers, communities, regulators and stakeholders, we will successfully progress toward achieving our goals – and creating clean energy.
