Management approach to economic performance, market presence, indirect economic impacts, availability & reliability

Fully disclosed

We believe Entergy exists to serve its stakeholders. Our goal is to create sustainable value for our owners, customers, employees and the communities we serve. To do that, we use a deliberate process to develop expectations on the key economic, environmental and social issues that present material opportunities and risks to Entergy or its stakeholders. Our expectations are informed by sophisticated analyses and are dynamically adjusted as internal and external conditions change. Our business strategy is based on our dynamic views on these drivers and has two main dimensions: operational excellence and portfolio management.
