Our Nation’s Energy Future (ONE Future) announced Aug. 12 that Enbridge Inc., the largest infrastructure company in North America, has joined the coalition; bringing the total number of member companies to 27.
“Enbridge has a storied history of providing safe, reliable energy to its customers across North America, and we’re pleased they joined the ONE Future coalition,” said Richard Hyde, Executive Director of ONE Future. “Their commitment to being a community partner is recognized through their many best practices; we are confident they will be an asset to the organization.”
As a ONE Future member, Enbridge will report its 2019 methane results as part of the Transmission & Storage sector within the coalition and will hold a seat on ONE Future’s Board of Directors. The 2018 Methane Intensity Report was released in the Fall of 2019. In it, the coalition registered a 2018 methane intensity number of 0.326%, a decrease of 41% from 2017, demonstrating that the natural gas industry can minimize methane emissions and increase production and throughput while supplying much needed energy to the U.S. and around the globe for years to come.
“We are pleased to be part of a coalition that shares our commitment to reduce methane emissions,” said Bill Yardley, executive vice president and president, Gas Transmission & Midstream at Enbridge. “Enbridge takes this mission seriously. We recognize that climate change is a global issue and we’ve undertaken many innovative and proactive initiatives to manage and reduce our emissions. We’re focused on creating long-term value for all of our stakeholders.”
