Beyond Net Zero Carbon by 2045

TOGETHER, creating a clean energy future for all


We aspire to be a beyond net zero carbon energy company by 2045.

We envision the energy we provide not only slowing climate change, but helping reverse it.

To achieve this vision, we’re pursuing a collection of commitments and aspirational goals:

  • We’re committed to reducing emissions from PSE electric and gas operations and electric supply to net zero by 2030. By 2045, PSE will have a 100% carbon-free electric supply.
  • We aspire to reach net zero carbon emissions for natural gas used in customer homes and businesses by 2045, with an interim target of a 30% emissions reduction by 2030.
  • We will go beyond reducing emissions that we report by partnering with customers and industry to reduce carbon across sectors and across the state.

The path to achieving Beyond Net Zero Carbon is complex. We don’t have all of the answers today, but with the right combination of technology, policy, and partnership, we believe this is possible.
