Latest ONE Future Methane Intensity Numbers Surpass Goal by 67%

November 23, 2020

Our Nation’s Energy Future (ONE Future), a coalition of 32 natural gas companies including Atmos Energyrecently announced its annual reporting of methane intensity numbersbeating its stated goal by 67 percent. To demonstrate credible and quantifiable results, Atmos Energy and all members agree to measure emissions and track progress over time according to EPA-approved reporting protocols.  

ONE Future was formed when seven companies aligned in 2014 with a focus to collectively achieve a science-based average rate of methane emissions equivalent to 1 percent (or less) of total natural gas production, understanding that methane emission reduction benefits not just the environment but also the natural gas industry, its employees, customers, communities, and investors.  

“I know I speak for each of our member companies when I say we couldn’t be prouder of this year’s report,” said Richard Hyde, Executive Director of ONE Future. “Our members have consistently delivered better than estimated improvement in methane emissions reduction for the last three years, and that proves that our efforts are not just working but are sustainable.”
