EQT Corporation has released of its Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report, which outlines the Company’s 2020 operational data and initiatives implemented to continuously improve the way it produces environmentally responsible, reliable, and low-cost energy. Additionally, the Company announced targets to achieve net zero Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in its Production segment operations by or before 2025.
“Natural gas is the proven abundant, reliable, affordable, and environmentally-responsible energy source. EQT is uniquely positioned as the largest pure-play natural gas producer to build upon its already industry-leading performance and demonstrate the true benefits of natural gas. Our 2020 ESG Report outlines our strategy for reducing our emissions and how we view our role in accelerating a transition to a low carbon future,” said Toby Z. Rice, President and Chief Executive Officer of EQT Corporation.
Rice continued, “The actions that we have taken in the last year have set EQT on the path to be net zero by 2025, if not sooner. Bolstering this ambition is our ability to leverage technology and innovation that not only improves our operational efficiencies but lessens our environmental impact. More recently, our efforts to certify our gas as well as our announced participation in the OGMP 2.0 Initiative to monitor methane emissions demonstrate our commitment to transparency to our stakeholders. Through this, we aim to satiate both the domestic and international demand for clean energy.”
