Setting Goals for Continued Improvement
While commitments must come first, we believe actions speak louder than intention. That’s why we included ESG metrics in our business strategy, set measurable goals to ensure accountability and tied executive compensation to these goals. Our ambitious goals were developed after conducting a thorough review of our operations and thoughtful discussions with our executive leadership team and the Board.
2025 ESG Goals
- Net Zero Scope 1 & Scope 2 carbon emissions by 2025
- *50% reduction in already low methane leak loss rate (less than 0.025%)
- *10% reduction in GHG intensity
- Alignment with TCFD and SASB disclosure standards
*From our 2019 baseline emissions
Industry-Leading Initiatives for a Low-Carbon Future
We recognize the growing concern over climate change and are committed to proactively managing our business to reduce our GHG emissions intensity and limit the environmental impacts of our operations. As the lightest and least greenhouse gas (GHG) intensive hydrocarbon, natural gas is expected to play a fundamental role as both the U.S. and global economies transition to a lower carbon future. Natural gas and natural gas liquids are part of the solution.
