We're committed to sustainability
It's our responsibility to make sure you always have natural gas there when you need it, but we also want to ensure that we're providing service to you in an environmentally responsible way. Learn more about our sustainability efforts on NiSource.com.
Enhancing pollinator habitats
We're committed to serving as responsible stewards of natural and environmental resources every week of the year. Part of fulfilling this commitment is a pledge to be good stewards of the environment through implementing innovative conservation approaches. We are actively working with local schools, property owners and within rights of way to develop flourishing pollinator habitats to help birds, bees and butterflies through our current pollinator crisis.
Recent pollinator habitat installations
We recently installed a pollinator garden at our Masterson Station in Lexington Park. In parternship with Toyota in Georgetown, we established a monarch butterfly weigh station.
Reducing greenhouse gas emissions
Over the past 10 years, our companies have reduced methane emissions from service and mainlines by 25 percent. By 2025, we’re targeting a 50 percent reduction in methane emissions over a 20-year period.
We're proud to be one of the U.S. EPA's Methane Challenge partners. Learn more about our strategy to reduce methane emissions.
Pipeline recycling program
For the past two years, we've been partnering with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources on a program to recycle expired and unused plastic pipelines. These pipelines are then repurposed into structures that give the smaller fish a safe place to grow and reproduce away from larger predators.
