The March 26 announcement credited IDACORP's performance in the classic triple bottom line (TBL) categories of environmental stewardship, economic performance and societal contributions. According to Target Rock Advisors, the marketplace shows utilities that best manage their TBL have "significantly outperformed" their peers over the past decade, as well as the broader market indices.

"This award helps differentiate our company from other utilities as a long-term, sustainable investment."IDACORP was selected for the honor from among approximately 150 publicly traded energy utilities and related companies across the country, representing 350 distinct operating subsidiaries. The company was one of three award recipients in the "mid cap" (market capitalization of $2-10 billion) category. "Sustainability has been a part of our daily business operations for nearly a century," said IDACORP Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Darrel Anderson. "This award signals operational excellence and shows our sustainability efforts are being recognized by the investment community." Based in Hauppauge, NY, Target Rock Advisors, LLC provides research, data and analytics, as well as related consulting services to utilities, the financial community and other related industries.
