Sustainability Report


A Message from Pedro J. Pizarro, President and Chief Executive Officer

Edison International remains at the forefront of the clean energy transition. As climate change continues to challenge our world in unprecedented ways, I’m confident in the strength of our team across Edison International, Southern California Edison and Edison Energy to lead the clean energy transition affordably and effectively.



2022 At A Glance

Sustainability is at the core of our vision to lead the transformation of the electric power industry toward a clean energy future. Edison International is helping to create a world where homes and businesses, as well as cars, trucks and mass transit, are powered by carbon-free electricity. Our principal subsidiary, Southern California Edison, is a leader in California’s efforts to reduce the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that contribute to climate change, while also focusing on the grid investments needed for a more resilient, equitable clean energy economy. Our competitive business, Edison Energy, partners with leading corporate, industrial and institutional clients around the globe to help them deliver on their strategic, financial, energy and sustainability goals.

Climate Change

Edison International is making strides to mitigate against climate change by accelerating the clean energy transition and adoption of efficient electric technologies. We are also focused on adapting our business in the near and long term to the effects of climate change, including climate change-driven wildfires.
