Social Impact

Ameren is part of the critical infrastructure of the communities we serve, and we take our social responsibility seriously. We know that to deliver a sustainable energy future, we need to commit as deeply to the matters impacting our society as we do those related to the environment.

This begins with building a safe and equitable workplace where our employees want to show up each day, so they can deliver on our commitment of safe, reliable and affordable service for our customers.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Ameren drives a culture of inclusion and powers the quality of life by eliminating barriers to people achieving excellence – both within our company and in our communities. Our core values include respecting others and having the integrity to do the right thing. But stating values is one thing. At Ameren, we believe we must have the courage to live those values, so we have intensified our diversity, equity and inclusion work to help enact positive change.

A culture that values diversity and fosters equity and inclusion is critical to long-term sustainable success. Through diverse experiences and ways of thinking, we can solve problems more creatively, work together more collaboratively, and better serve our diverse customers and communities. We’re proud to have built award-winning diversity programs, and DE&I efforts that our co-workers consistently rank highly in over a decade of annual engagement surveys.

How Ameren Promotes DE&I

Supplier Diversity Program

An important element of our supplier program is spending with local suppliers to support jobs and our regional economy. In 2022, Ameren spent approximately $708 million with certified diverse suppliers located in Missouri and Illinois.

In addition, Ameren has developed a dedicated supplier diversity program to identify diverse-owned businesses to support key areas of our supply chain. We’ve implemented a Diverse Business Mentoring Program and host a bi-annual Supplier Diversity Symposium with workshops and pitch meetings. Ameren has committed to increase our diverse- owned businesses spending to an average of 25% of all suppliers. Read about a few of our successful partnerships in our 2022 Diversity & Inclusion Annual Report.
