01 Mar 2021
UGI Corporation’s Natural Gas Businesses group, made up of affiliates UGI Utilities and UGI Energy Services, have joined the coalition Our Nation’s Energy Future (ONE Future). With UGI’s membership, there are now 37 companies participating in ONE Future.
ONE Future was formed in 2014 by natural gas production, transmission and distribution companies with a focus to collectively achieve reductions in the average rate of methane emissions across member facilities equivalent to one percent (or less) of total natural gas production.
“Our membership in ONE Future is another step toward achieving UGI’s ambitious greenhouse gas emission reduction targets,” said Robert F. Beard, UGI Executive Vice President – Natural Gas Businesses. “For over 135 years, UGI has focused on providing safe, reliable service to its customers and to the many communities it serves.”
Joining ONE Future reaffirms UGI’s commitment to minimizing its environmental impact and complements its ongoing environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives.
“We remain committed to growing our business responsibly, while meeting the social needs of our customers, employees, and communities,” said John L. Walsh, President and Chief Executive Officer of UGI Corporation. “We look forward to continuing to enhance and expand our ESG initiatives aimed at lowering methane and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, enhancing system integrity and improving safety.”
