Net Zero by 2035 Goals
Actionable, Measurable, Transparent
CenterPoint Energy has committed to be the first combined electric and natural gas utility with electric generating assets to achieve Net Zero for its Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 2035 – fifteen years ahead of our peers. But we don’t just want to achieve emission reductions faster. Our goals are based on actionable pathways taken on our electric and natural gas operating systems within our footprint. We intend to achieve our Net Zero goals through measurable emission reductions and minimal reliance on carbon offsets. Further, we will report our emission reductions in a transparent manner.
