States with robust economies, new jobs, and increased investment all have one thing in common: forward-thinking clean energy policies that help businesses plan for the future. Here in the Northeast, the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) is part of a legacy of clean energy leadership, which sets an annual cap for the region’s aggregate greenhouse gas emissions across nine states. The first cooperative effort of its kind, RGGI is a critical tool empowering businesses such as Timberland to invest in our future while also reducing costs.

GHG emissions

NRG closely monitors its environmental impacts. We emit CO2 when generating electricity at most of our facilities. The graphs presented below illustrate our U.S. scope 1 emissions of CO2e for 2014, 2015 and 2016. We anticipate reductions in our future emissions profile as we modernize our fleet through repowering, improve generation efficiencies and explore methods to capture CO2.

Multimedia with summary

HPE will be the first company to enable suppliers to set science-based GHG reduction targets in their own operations. Launched in May, the program will enable 80% of manufacturing suppliers, by spend, to reduce their own emissions in line with the targets that climate science says is necessary to prevent dangerous global warming. This effort seeks to avoid 100 million tons of emissions by 2025, equivalent to taking 21 million passenger vehicles off the road for one year.
