Our Commitment to Corporate Responsibility

Duquesne Light Company (DLC) is playing a vital role in helping the Pittsburgh region transition to a clean energy future that is greener, healthier and more equitable. As we join our trusted partners in setting the stage for future generations to thrive, we're focused on delivering exceptional results today while boldly harnessing opportunities for tomorrow.

On this page, we welcome you to explore our steadfast commitment to corporate responsibility and the efforts we're making to enhance our environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy.


In 2020, DLC took significant steps toward developing a companywide ESG strategy. That work included completing our first materiality matrix and engaging key stakeholders on ESG topics and issues.

In 2021 we published our first set of ESG performance metrics through the EEI reporting template, and we expanded our public commitments to include electrifying 30% of our fleet by 2030 and joining Rewiring America’s pledge “CEO’s for Electrification.”

In 2022, we have continued to progress our focus on topics that are central to our overall business strategy as well as our ESG opportunities, including investments in infrastructure reliability, expanding access to renewables and distributed energy resources and advancing electrification.

Clean Energy

Duquesne Light Company is here to power resilient, sustainable Pittsburgh communities and support clean energy growth in ways that benefit all customers. By supporting innovative energy solutions, DLC can help our communities transition to a clean energy future.  

DLC Electric Vehicle


We’re leading the charge! Today our fleet includes electric sedans and pickup trucks, plug-in hybrid bucket trucks, and electric forklifts.

And this is just the start. We’re committed to 30x30 — by 2030, 30% of DLC’s fleet will be powered by electricity.




Our mission is to build a clean energy future for all where no one is left behind. That starts in the workplace where we strive to create an inclusive atmosphere where every employee feels valued and respected.
