Avista announces natural gas emission reduction goal
Building on our clean electricity goals, Avista has set a new aspirational natural gas goal of being carbon neutral by 2045, with a near-term goal of 30% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.
Avista has always been on the forefront of clean energy and innovation. Founded on clean, renewable hydro power on the banks of the Spokane River, Avista has maintained a generation portfolio that is already more than half renewable, while continuously making investments in new renewable energy, advancing the efficient use of electricity and natural gas, and driving technology innovation that has enabled and will continue to become the platform and gateway to a clean energy future.
These new goals build on the clean electricity goals we declared in 2019 to serve our customers with 100 percent clean electricity by 2045 and to have a carbon-neutral supply of electricity by the end of 2027.
Our natural gas goal demonstrates that Avista’s vision of a clean energy future encompasses both electric and natural gas resources. We are dedicated to reducing and ultimately eliminating greenhouse gases from the energy we deliver to our customers.
