INGAA pledges net-zero emissions by 2050

By DJ Slater29 January 2021

The Interstate Natural Gas Association of America (INGAA) is addressing climate change with a set of commitments aimed at reaching net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from natural gas transmission and storage by 2050.

“Our nation’s natural gas transmission infrastructure is central to providing clean, affordable and reliable energy to all Americans,” said David Slater, chairman of the INGAA Board. “Building on the progress the industry has already made, INGAA is committed to supporting its members in their efforts to further reduce GHG emissions and work together to address the issue of climate change.”

INGAA’s climate commitments include member companies, such as Williams, Enbridge and Kinder Morgan, reducing individual GHG emissions from natural gas transmission and storage operations; providing consistent and transparent data collection, measurement and reporting of GHG emissions from operations; and reducing the carbon intensity of natural gas infrastructure by adopting and investing in more efficient technologies.

INGAA members also commit to active and constructive engagement with government officials, investors and other public and private stakeholders to develop energy policies that use our national gas transmission infrastructure, benefit our environment and reduce GHG emissions. The new commitments build upon INGAA commitments announced in 2018 to minimize methane emissions from natural gas transmission and storage operations.
