Piedmont Natural Gas Announces Progress on Sustainability Initiatives
Piedmont Natural Gas announced the publication of its 2015 Sustainability Report, a comprehensive look at the company’s efforts to integrate environmental, social and economic sustainability into all aspects of its business operations. The report is the third in a series published every two years since 2011.
This year’s report details the many ways Piedmont reduced its own carbon footprint over the past two years—including converting company cars and trucks to environmentally responsible natural gas vehicles and making facilities more energy-efficient.
Piedmont Natural Gas is close to reaching a goal set two years ago to convert 30 percent of its own fleet to vehicles powered by natural gas. As of 2014, the company has converted about 300 vehicles, or 28 percent of the fleet to NGVs, displacing the equivalent of 200,000 gallons of gasoline. Piedmont is also helping commercial and private NGV owners go green with its network of public CNG refueling stations, including its 10th station scheduled to open in September in Anderson, South Carolina.
