As the global population grows, infrastructure ages and demand for energy and water increases, Itron is focused on solving the problems of the future with solutions for today. We are dedicated to creating resourceful solutions by helping utilities and cities across the world with our technology, philanthropy and dedicated employees. As an example of how we are doing our part and measuring our efforts, we are proud to release our 2016 Corporate Sustainability Report (CSR).

The report follows the internationally-accepted Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines for communicating environmental, economic and social indicators to present how Itron has continued to increase sustainable practices and focus on resourcefulness.
