Corporate Social Responsibility 

Ameren’s mission, To Power the Quality of Life, is at the heart of everything we do. Safe, reliable, affordable and cleaner energy is critical to the well-being and security of our customers, communities and country. For decades, Ameren has recognized the importance of being a strong corporate citizen. Our active engagement and investments in the communities we serve, including extensive volunteerism by our 8,600 co-workers, help us deliver superior value to our customers and shareholders, and make a positive contribution to society.

Sustainability Principles

We define sustainability as ongoing efforts aimed at meeting the needs of the current generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. Sustainability requires us to carefully consider community betterment, environmental stewardship and financial strength - people, planet and profit. We strive to continually support sustainable practices within financial and operating realities.
