Our Climate Commitment

Decarbonization has been central to Emera’s strategy for nearly two decades.

And we have a great story to tell. Now, our Climate Commitment builds on our strong track record with our vision to achieve net-zero CO2 emissions by 2050. We’ve also set clear CO2 reduction goals along the way.



Since 2005 we’ve reduced CO2 emissions by 39% and coal use by 65%




By 2023 we’ll reduce our coal use by at least 80%

We’ll seek to achieve these goals and realize our net-zero vision by adopting emerging technologies and working constructively with policymakers, regulators, partners, investors, and our communities. All while staying focused on enhancing reliability and never losing sight of affordability for our customers.
