The ONE Future Coalition is a group of more than 40 natural gas companies working together to reduce methane emissions across the natural gas value chain to 1% (or less). Our Coalition is comprised of some of the largest natural gas Production, Gathering & Boosting, Processing, Transmission & Storage, and Distribution companies in the U.S. and represents more than 15% of the U.S. natural gas value chain.
In its 2020 report, ONE Future registered a methane intensity number of 0.334% (1/3 of 1%), beating its one percent goal by 67%, demonstrating that our members deliver one molecule of gas from the rig to the burner tip with 99.67% efficiency. Our Coalition has proven that the natural gas industry can minimize methane emissions and increase production and throughput while supplying much-needed energy to the U.S. and around the globe long-term.
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).
Natural gas is abundant, accessible, and affordable and powers 38% of the US electric grid; ONE Future’s mission is to ensure the future of natural gas as a long-term sustainable fuel. This mission will help to preserve the industry’s leadership in energy production and the 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. We target policymakers and the investment community to demonstrate that our emission reduction efforts are making a difference.
With one goal in mind, each member has the flexibility to deploy their capital where it will be maximally effective in reducing emissions. For one company that may be deploying an innovative technology, for another modifying a work practice, or another retiring an asset. To demonstrate credible and measurable results, ONE Future’s members agree to measure their emissions and track their progress over time according to uniform, EPA-approved reporting protocols. This is effective because most studies demonstrate that the majority of methane emissions come from a small fraction of sources. Our approach ensures that it is not just good for the environment, but that it is also good for the natural gas industry. This includes its employees, customers, communities, and investors.
ONE Future is a 501 © (6) organization governed by a steering committee, comprised of members from each company who meet quarterly to set the direction for the organization and ensure goals are being achieved. ONE Future also has a technical committee that meets bi-weekly; this group is comprised of member company representatives that focus on air issues as part of their profession.
ONE Future is a member-driven coalition led by an Executive Director but has no staff. ONE Future employs third-party consultants to assist with the technical committee and public relations. ONE Future requires new members to agree that they will work to reduce their methane emissions and collaborate with other ONE Future members to collectively help the supply chain drive down methane emissions.
