Environmental Responsibility

Our enterprise-wide environmental report describes our commitment to responsible stewardship of natural resources and provides a wealth of information on environmental management and performance. We also invite you to read our Corporate Environmental Policy and our Greenhouse Gas report.

Dominion Partners with Carbon-Neutral House in Northern Virginia

Dominion Virginia Power partnered in 2009 with a host of designers and builders to make a new home in Northern Virginia carbon neutral. The CharityWorks GreenHouse in McLean, Va., is the first carbon-neutral house on the East Coast.

The builders enrolled the house in the Dominion Green Power program, which guarantees that renewable energy was produced and delivered to the power pool, preventing the need for energy to be generated from other traditional sources over time.
