Core Values

FirstEnergy’s core values identify the beliefs and ideals that matter most to us. They guide the decisions we make and the actions we take every day, defining who we aspire to be.

We believe that for our core values to really matter, they must be more than just words—they must be engrained in how we operate, behave and interact daily with each other and our communities. To accomplish this, we communicate regularly with employees about what the values mean, why they are important and how we all can put them into action. We also rely on our leaders to model our core values every day, as they set an ethics- and integrity-focused tone at the highest levels of our company.


We always act ethically with honesty, humility and accountability.


We keep ourselves and others safe.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We embrace differences, ensure every employee is treated fairly and create a culture where everyone feels they belong.

Performance Excellence

We pursue excellence and seek opportunities for growth, innovation and continuous improvement.


We positively impact our customers, communities and other stakeholders and strive to protect the environment.
