Vectren Releases First Corporate Sustainability Report

EVANSVILLE, IN--(Marketwire - Nov 9, 2011) - Vectren Corporation (NYSE: VVC) has released its first corporate sustainability report, Sustainability In Practice, which illustrates the company's commitment to the environment and the communities it serves, as well as investors and employees.

The report profiles Vectren's efforts to grow its well-diversified business in economically, environmentally and socially sustainable ways by detailing recent upgrades in emissions control equipment, efforts to revitalize struggling communities, as well as programs designed to enhance the reliability of its electric and natural gas infrastructure.

"While other companies have been touting their intent to pursue sustainable business initiatives, we have been quietly executing these practices for more than a decade," said Vectren Chairman, President and CEO Carl Chapman. "From operating some of the cleanest coal-fired generation in the Midwest to incenting customers to upgrade to more energy efficient appliances, Vectren strives to build both a sustainable company and sustainable communities."

Details regarding the company's safety standards, efforts in conservation, generation fleet, renewable energy resources and corporate structure are also included in the inaugural report.

"Our sustainability practices embody our company goals and initiatives," said Angila Retherford, Vectren's director of environmental affairs and corporate sustainability. "We will continue to strive to be a leader in conservation; a leader in clean energy; and a leader in community revitalization, and believe these efforts toward sustainable growth will continue to be an important contributor to long-term corporate performance."
