EQT Obtains Equitable Origin and MiQ Certifications of a Majority of its Natural Gas
EQT Corporation has certified a majority of its natural gas under both the EO100™ Standard for Responsible Energy Development, which focuses on environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance, and MiQ methane standard. EQT’s certified natural gas production now comprises 4.5% of all natural gas produced in the U.S., making EQT not only the nation’s largest natural gas producer, but also the nation’s largest producer of certified natural gas.
EQT received both certifications in November, and the first block of the Company’s certified natural gas is now available for trading on MiQ’s Digital Registry. The certifications provide a transparent, verified method for tracking EQT’s ESG commitments, which include achieving net zero Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and reducing EQT’s methane emissions intensity by 65% by 2025.
Soledad Mills, CEO, Equitable Origin, said, “EO100TM certification is enabling differentiation and recognition of responsibly-produced gas. This achievement by EQT demonstrates their excellence in environmental and social performance and meets the increasing demand across the market for gas that has been certified based on ESG performance.”
