Jemena has announced it aims to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
The announcement coincided with the release of the energy infrastructure company’s 2020 Sustainability Report called Adapting to Change.
Jemena Managing Director Frank Tudor said the company was excited by the challenge ahead of it.
“As we map a path towards a net zero future, we will build on the many relationships we have both within and outside of our sector to develop and commercialise the technology needed to deliver energy services that are reliable, affordable, and sustainable,” he said.
“Our net zero ambition represents an important opportunity to partner across the industry to create Australia’s new energy future.
“Our commitment will guide our business strategy and will help shape our future investments while ensuring our customers have access to energy services which are fit for the 21st century.”
Jemena is currently pursuing a number of low emission projects, including the Western Sydney Green Gas Project which will see green hydrogen blended into the company’s New South Wales natural gas network.
Mr Tudor said the new sustainability report demonstrated how the Jemena was able to adapt to changing circumstances.
“We believe it is this adaptability and ability to make the most of technology that will serve us well as we respond to the challenges we face as an energy sector over the coming years.”
