Climate Change

Williams is deploying practical and immediate steps to reduce GHG emissions while investing in the technology needed to build a clean energy economy. We are proud of the critical role that natural gas plays in reducing emissions in the U.S. At the same time, we recognize that more needs to be done to mitigate the risks of climate change by investing in a sustainable, low-carbon future.

We were the first North American midstream company to commit to actionable climate targets. We have reduced our company-wide Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 47% since 2005, and are on our way to meeting our 2030 goal of a 56% reduction.

Our progress on this goal puts us on a positive trajectory toward our ambitions of net zero GHG emissions by 2050. Williams is strategically focused on reducing Scope 1 and 2 emissions at this time. We continue to have ongoing conversations with internal and external stakeholders regarding the role of Scope 3 emissions for midstream pipeline companies. For additional information on reducing GHG emissions from our operations, see Operational Greenhouse Gas Emissions in the 2021 Sustainability Report.
