    Southern California Gas Company is excited to share with you an ambitious commitment we’re making -- to achieve net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in our operations and delivery of energy by 2045.

    SoCalGas’ commitment makes us the largest North American gas distribution utility to set a net-zero target that includes scopes 1, 2, and 3 GHG emissions. We plan to reduce our company’s direct emissions and those generated by customers. This means not only will the trucks we drive, the buildings we own, and the pipelines we operate make this transition, but also the fuel we deliver to our customers will be net zero emissions by 2045.

    America’s decision to rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement reaffirms our national commitment to a global clean energy future. California lawmakers have set even more ambitious goals – carbon neutrality across all sectors of the economy by 2045. SoCalGas supports these goals. As we take this journey to a cleaner energy future, it is vital that energy remain reliable and affordable for all Californians. No energy company is more dedicated to achieving that than SoCalGas.

    SoCalGas’ commitment to net zero 2045 is a natural extension of our decades-long industry leadership. Since the passage of California’s landmark California's Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (AB 32), our decarbonization, diversification, and digitalization efforts have supported the reduction of over 7 million metric tons of CO2e below our 1990 levels – the equivalent of removing 1.5 million cars from the road for a year.

    We invite you to read our Climate Commitment here and our press release announcing the news here.

    Thank you for your continued partnership and support
