RNG certificates offer a fossil-free alternative for powering your business

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 emissions from natural gas, there is a growing demand for a new tool: renewable natural gas (RNG).

Though Greenhouse Gas Protocol has yet to initiate the development of guidance on RNG Certificate usage, leading voluntary standards such as CDP, The Climate Registry, and RE100, allow entities that purchase RNG certificates the ability to claim the environmental benefit of substituting RNG for conventional natural gas.

RNG BENEFITS

  • Provides a claim to consuming biogas and the associated emissions profile under programs run by the California Air Resources Board, Environmental Protection Agency, CDP, The Climate Registry, RE100, and others 
  • Streamlines attribute purchase without changing current natural gas supply, through RNG certificates and one nationwide interconnected pipeline network
  • Allows the ability to access lucrative Clean Fuel Standards credits when gas is used as transportation fuel.
  • Reduces the carbon intensity of the national fuel mix and displaces fossil gas
