Washington Gas has set aggressive greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction goals, as part of the GHG Management Plan.
Building on the successful efforts that have already been made in reducing GHG emissions, Washington Gas continues to pursue additional efforts in energy efficiency and renewable energy that will further reduce GHG emissions for the company and its customers. The company has set three high-level emissions reductions goals for 2025:
- Our fleet and facilities will be carbon neutral.
- 38 percent reduction in GHG emissions for every therm of natural gas delivered to customers by 2020, compared to a 2008 baseline.
- Help our customers save energy equivalent to 18 million metric tons of CO2 between 2015 and 2025
38% of Washington Gas vehicles are now fueled with CNG, emitting significantly less carbon dioxide than gasoline or diesel fueled vehicles.
