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.
