Meet Scope 1 emission reduction goals with Renewable Natural Gas Certificates
With more organizations committing to long-term GHG reduction goals, efforts to address all sources of emissions are ramping up. While electrification, energy efficiency, and carbon offsets have been the primary options available to address Scope 1 emissions from natural gas, there is a growing demand for a new tool: renewable natural gas (RNG).
RNG Certificates allow entities to purchase RNG and claim the environmental benefit of substituting RNG for conventional natural gas, therefore eliminating their Scope 1 carbon emissions.
- Directly eliminates natural gas Scope 1 carbon emissions to meet long-term science-based targets or net zero climate commitments.
- Streamlined attribute purchase without changing current natural gas supply, through RNG Certificates and one nationwide interconnected pipeline network.
- Lucrative Renewable Fuel Standard and Low Carbon Fuel Standard credits can be generated when gas is used as transportation fuel.
