Our procurement and supply chain organization has launched several initiatives that embed procurement and supply chain strategies around sustainability, continuous improvement, sustainable generation, resilience and innovation.

Investment recovery

  • Our investment recovery organization supports Entergy’s role in sustainability through investment recovery.
  • We work to recycle and recover the value of materials that otherwise might end up in landfills. In 2023, we recycled more than 420,000 gallons of transformer oil and over 29 million pounds of various metals.
  • We sell surplus assets and return the proceeds to our utility operating companies. This benefits customers by offsetting operations costs that are part of the rates our customers pay. In 2023, our investment recovery value totaled $10.46 million. From 2019 to 2023, our cumulative sales of surplus assets totaled $59 million.
  • Our program helps facilitate Entergy's transition to a circular economy, an essential step for meeting our 2030 and 2050 climate goals. To learn more about this program, visit here.

Print ReLEAF

Through our strategic partnership with Print ReLEAF, a company measuring and offsetting paper consumption by planting trees, Entergy contributed funding to plant more than 25,000 trees in Brazil, India, Ireland, Madagascar, Mexico, the Dominican Republic and the United States. This has resulted in offsetting the use of more than 208,698,000 sheets of paper.

Grassroots Sustainability Champions Team

This is a companywide cross-functional team resulting from collaboration with our employee resource groups. It identifies and pursues environmental and social opportunities. Through this grassroots team, we’re engaging and empowering employees to help Entergy achieve its sustainability goals and help address our industry's greatest challenges. Champions identify employee-driven sustainability initiatives and opportunities through engagement of peers, work groups and internal networks to build support for and increase participation in several initiatives, such as:

  • Textile recycling of outdated Entergy-branded materials.
  • Environmental volunteerism.
  • Electric vehicle initiatives.
  • Sustainable events and catering.
