National Grid is an electricity, natural gas and clean energy company serving more than 20 million people in New York, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. National Grid is transforming its electricity and natural gas networks with smarter, cleaner and more resilient energy solutions to meet the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions to net zero.
The company aims to achieve Net Zero by 2050 including emissions from the sale of electricity and gas to customers. This is part of the Responsible Business Charter, which lays out National Grid’s commitments to the environment, employees, customers and communities.
The company is also working to accelerate decarbonization through its competitive, unregulated unit, National Grid Ventures, which has a diverse portfolio of low carbon and renewable energy businesses. National Grid Partners, the corporate investment and innovation arm, invests in disruptive technologies in order to future-proof National Grid.
National Grid is a Principal Partner of COP26 – the UN climate change conference - in Glasgow this year. Participation in both COP26 and Climate Week NYC provide unique opportunities to drive more action toward a clean energy future – in the UK, Northeast US and globally - and show that achieving net zero is possible. Both events will connect key global stakeholders to identify how they can partner to create a healthier climate.
