ONE Future was formed when eight companies came together in 2014. The companies’ focus was to collectively achieve a science-based average rate of methane emissions across its facilities. The goal was for the average rate to be equivalent to one percent (or less) of total natural gas production. Since formation, we have grown to 26 companies accounting for some of the largest natural gas producers, transmission, and distribution companies in the U.S.
ONE Future members operate in 11 out of the 19 production basins, and other segments of the value chain operate in multiple regions of the country. This ensures that ONE Future’s data represents a geographically diverse and material share of the U.S. natural gas supply chain.
ONE Future’s overarching goal is to ensure the future of natural gas as a long-term sustainable fuel. This goal will help to preserve the industry’s leadership in energy production and reduction of emissions.
We focus on identifying policy and technical solutions that yield continuous improvement in the management of methane emissions associated with the production, processing, transmission and distribution of natural gas.
ONE Future’s goal is to ensure the future of natural gas as a clean energy source by reducing member company methane emissions to 1% (or less) by 2025.
We believe that methane emission reduction should be implemented on a flexible performance-based approach selected by each company. This approach ensures that it is not just good for the environment, but is also good for the natural gas industry. This includes its employees, customers, communities, and investors.
