Please note the information presented is deemed representative at the time of its original release. Changes in historical information may occur due to adjustments in accounting and reporting standards & procedures.

Non-GAAP Information

In addition to disclosing results determined in accordance with GAAP, CMS may also disclose certain non-GAAP and pro forma non-GAAP results of operations, including net income, earnings per share, and operating income that make certain adjustments or exclude certain charges and gains that are outlined in the schedules included in this website. CMS provides historical financial results on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis. Management views adjusted earnings as a key measure of the company’s present operating financial performance and uses adjusted earnings for external communications with analysts and investors. Internally, the company uses adjusted earnings to measure and assess performance. Adjustments could include items such as discontinued operations, asset sales, impairments, restructuring costs, regulatory items from prior years, or other items. Because the company is not able to estimate the impact of specific line items, which have the potential to significantly impact, favorably or unfavorably, the company’s reported earnings in future periods, the company is not providing reported earnings guidance nor is it providing a reconciliation for the comparable future period earnings.

CMS and Virtua also take no responsibility for third party pricing data provided for informational purposes and certain ratio results formulated from the provided third party pricing data. The non-GAAP information is not prepared in accordance with GAAP and may not be comparable to non-GAAP information used by other companies. The non-GAAP information should be considered supplemental information to assist in fully understanding our business results, rather than as a substitute for the reported earnings.

A reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure is included as a separate link and also posted on the CMS website at www.cmsenergy.com.

Our Strategic Talent Sourcing strategy focuses on current and future workforce issues crucial to building and sustaining Michigan’s energy industry. There are two goals related to student career readiness and awareness:

  • Align education and training resources across Michigan to assist the state’s energy industry.
  • Build awareness of career pathways in the energy industry.

Progress is primarily measured via True Partnership – specifically a company-developed Strategic Partnership Index (SPI) metric.

Goal for 2021:

Earn 86 points on the SPI. Points are earned through a progression system and tracked on the Consumers Energy People and Culture scorecard.

As part of the Consumers Energy Foundation’s People priority, the foundation supports education at all stages to help improve quality of life. This includes supporting K-12 programs, increasing high school graduation rates and supporting STEM education programs to address to skilled trades gap in Michigan.

Charitable Giving

Consumers Energy is committed to advancing diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) in the workplace. We’re empowering our employees through employee resource groups, training and encouraging conversations about DE&I. We are also embedding DE&I in everything we do, including volunteerism, shaping political activity, communications, supply chain, philanthropy, customer interactions and community engagement. Additional metrics and goals are forthcoming.

In 2021, we launched a from-the-top learning model for our 8,500 employees, starting with company leaders. This includes 100% unconscious bias training for employees across the company by 2022, and all leaders by the end of 2021. We’re setting common expectations and norms about all things DE&I. By training all employees in core DE&I concepts — such as the roles unconscious bias plays in our personal and professional relationships and decision-making — we’re building a solid foundation that makes DE&I an integral part of our work experience.

The company doubled the Inclusion Champion program in January 2021. The program helps bring core DEI concepts to life at all organizational levels. The individual roles advance belonging by leading grassroots communication efforts, sharing opportunities for involvement, identifying and addressing gaps, solving problems and providing continuous learning and development. One goal is to address the gap between our unionized workforce and non-union workforce on our DE&I Index annual survey, focused on belonging.

Reducing waste, whether its waste sent to landfill or wasted energy is important to our Company. We have a corporate gal to reduce all waste 10% from a 2020 baseline. In 2020 we reduced the amount of waste sent to landfill by 54% from a 2017 baseline.

Through energy efficiency programs and rebates, , Consumers Energy has helped its residential and business customers save more than 21,021 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of electricity and 111,744 MCF of natural gas, enough to power over 2.5 million homes and supply natural gas to 1 million homes in Michigan for a year. This equates to more than 18.7 million tons of avoided carbon dioxide emissions over the life of the programs.
