Moxy Vote featured our report on Southern Company in its Good Causes: Environment focus section, related to corporate environmental policy and impact. The report found a weak record on the environment. According to Todd Larsen, Director of Corporate Responsibility, the economic benefits for customers and shareholders comes “at a high price: the extraordinary pollution produced by Southern Company, which harms the communities it operates in, as well as fueling global warming, and the risks posed by the company’s increasing use of nuclear power and growing coal ash ponds.”
