Atmos Energy Corporation has released its latest corporate responsibility and sustainability report.
The CRS Report outlines Atmos ESG strategy and commitments as well as the progress made executing that strategy and meeting those commitments. The CRS Report primarily covers Atmos Energy’s activities during the 2021 fiscal year. Select highlights of the report include:
Developed a comprehensive environmental strategy focused on reducing Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions and other environmental impacts from our operations, fleet, facilities, gas supply, and customer end-use.
Replaced over 1,100 miles of distribution and transmission pipe (representing approximately 1.4% of our system), including the elimination of all remaining cast-iron pipe, and over 38,000 steel service lines (representing approximately 5% of our steel service line inventory). Since 2017, our system modernization projects have reduced methane emissions for EPA reported distribution mains and services by approximately 20%.
Demonstrated the vital role of natural gas through the completion of our zero net energy (ZNE) home, which uses high-efficiency natural gas appliances, rooftop solar panels, and innovative weatherization to produce more energy than it consumes at a very affordable cost for the homeowner. We are currently developing several more ZNE homes.
Donated financial resources through our Fueling Safe and Thriving Communities program, that provided 300,000 meals for those struggling with hunger; delivered more than 25,000 meals to first responders and healthcare workers during National Hospital Week; and helped over 53,000 households receive financial assistance to help pay monthly bills.
