We care about the world in which we live. We take care of the lands, waters, and living creatures both within our boundaries and beyond.
Detroit Edison and MichCon, our two primary operating utilities, have a long history of environmental stewardship in Michigan. We have instituted significant environmental management practices and won awards from many external agencies for our voluntary measures. Our voluntary stewardship activities involve hundreds of employees from across the company and dozens of external partnerships including universities, government agencies and nonprofit organizations.
DTE Energy facilities are home to hundreds of species of wildlife. Some are endangered or threatened, and we are hoping their numbers increase and their populations stabilize, in part through our efforts to provide habitat in an environment that frequently makes little room for wildlife. Other species are common, and the conservation goal, as stated by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, is to “keep common species common” by providing habitat and protection before they become rare. Still other species are invasive – nonnative exotics whose unchecked growth endangers our native plants and animals and places an economic burden upon our society.
