“Our HEI family of companies is guided by a common purpose to create a better Hawai‘i – one that is thriving economically, environmentally, culturally and socially,” said Scott Seu, HEI president and CEO. “We believe this purpose serves the long-term interests of all of our stakeholders – it inspires us to act in ways that allow us not simply to advance, but to leap forward into a future that’s brighter for us all.”

The theme of HEI’s latest ESG report is “Laulima,” which translates to “many hands working together.” The report details the work of all of the HEI companies in 2022 toward their common purpose, including in areas such as decarbonization; economic health and affordability; reliability and resilience; diversity, equity and inclusion; and human capital management.

“Laulima reflects the fact that creating a sustainable, thriving future is a collective effort,” said Celeste Connors, CEO of Hawaiʻi Green Growth Local2030 Hub and an HEI board member. “As an island economy, we are constantly reminded of our interdependence and finite resources, and that informs the way we work together and the way business is done in Hawaiʻi and at HEI.”

The report extends HEI’s Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) – aligned reporting from the previous two years. Included this year is an expanded greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory that details Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions and key Scope 3 emissions categories across all HEI companies. This year’s report continues to present data aligned with Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) guidelines for HEI’s utility and bank subsidiaries.
