Everyone deserves energy that is not only clean, but also safe, reliable and affordable. The best approach to achieving this is an “all of the above” energy strategy that capitalizes on the unique benefits gas, renewables, nuclear power and negative carbon initiatives each respectively provide and uses them at the appropriate time.

It's a mission we've already started. In the past two decades, we mitigated more than 3.3 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent from the atmosphere. These reductions are the result of aggressive investment, like pipeline replacement, to improve the safety and performance of our natural gas system.
