Net Zero by 2035 Goals
Actionable, Measurable, Transparent
CenterPoint Energy is the first combined electric and natural gas utility with generation to announce its Net Zero goals for its Scope 1 and certain Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 2035, nearly 15 years ahead of certain of our peers’ average goals. In addition to our Net Zero goals, we have set a Scope 3 emission reduction goal across our entire multi-state footprint. Specifically, CenterPoint Energy aims to help our residential and commercial customers reduce greenhouse gas emissions attributable to their end use of natural gas by 20-30% by 2035 from a 2021 baseline.
