Clean Energy sustainability goals outline road to 100% renewable, zero-carbon fuel 20 years ahead of California electric grid
 

   Clean Energy Fuels Corp. has set goals to offer Zero-Carbon1 Redeem™ renewable natural gas (RNG) at all of its fueling stations by 2025, summarized in its Corporate Sustainability Report unveiled at the GreenBiz Conference.

   By transitioning exclusively to Redeem by 2025 and by achieving Zero-Carbon intensity, Clean Energy would outdistance other alternative fuels, including electric vehicles, which are not excepted to hit that mark until 2045.

   “In 2014, the first full year it was available, Clean Energy delivered more than 20 million gallons of Redeem to our stations, which represented 7 percent of our overall fuel mix. Last year, we delivered 110 million gallons of Redeem, which represents 53 percent of the RNG delivered in the market today. This demonstrates a significant growth in demand by our customers as they see switching to RNG as an economical and easy way to meet their own sustainability goals,” said Andrew J. Littlefair, president and CEO, Clean Energy. “Clean Energy’s own corporate vision is directly tied to reducing the impact of harmful emissions from the transportation sector, and as such we have committed to delivering carbon-free Redeem to all of our customers by 2025.”

   The Corporate Sustainability Report was prepared according to Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards, the most widely recognized framework for sustainability reporting. Clean Energy will continue to track the percentage and carbon index of its fuel portfolio according to the California Air Resources Board (CARB) Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) lifecycle assessment tool, making progress available on an annual basis.
