DTE Midstream, DTE Energy’s non-utility natural gas pipeline, storage and gathering business, announced its goal to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, with 30 percent of its carbon emissions reduction to take place in the next decade.
The roadmap to achieving this goal includes comprehensive integration of carbon capture strategies to reduce emissions in its operations.
“Climate change is one of the defining public policy issues of our time. I’m proud that DTE Midstream is joining our electric and gas utilities in our goal to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050,” said Jerry Norcia, president and CEO of DTE Energy. “This announcement is another example of DTE’s commitment to a clean energy future.”
DTE Midstream has already made inroads in the company’s environmental stewardship journey. Since 2016, DTE Midstream has partnered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in its Methane Challenge Program to reduce methane emissions from natural gas operations.
This partnership has focused on implementing best management practices to mitigate methane emissions from midstream operations.
As a result, EPA leaders have recognized DTE Midstream as a leader in reducing methane emissions and improving air quality in the United States. In 2020, DTE Midstream posted its methane intensity data as part of DTE’s Natural Gas Sustainability Initiative (NGSI) report. NGSI is a voluntary, industry-wide approach for companies to calculate methane emission intensity by segment.
DTE is the first company in the nation to publish this report and is leading the industry in protocol adoption.
