Environmental

NJR is committed to a clean, sustainable future and we support public policy goals for greenhouse gas emissions reduction to address the urgency of climate change.

Building on our record of leadership and execution in reducing emissions, NJR has now set a goal to be net-zero in emissions from our New Jersey operations by 2050. Learn more.

NJNG's Green Hydrogen Project 

"By the year 2050, we believe New Jersey Natural Gas (NJNG) will be able to serve its customers with a carbon neutral fuel supply, by transitioning to carbon-neutral and zero emission fuels like RNG and green hydrogen. In doing so we will help reach NJ’s climate goals more quickly, more affordably, with greater reliability and in a way that complements our state’s clean energy ambitions." Learn more.

Utilizing Existing Pipeline Infrastructure Will Spur Our Clean Energy Transition

As the parent company of New Jersey Natural Gas, one of four regulated natural gas utilities in the state, we're focused on building the clean energy future and putting our infrastructure to work delivering on climate and emissions reduction goals. New Jersey's already exisiting, reliable pipeline network can integrate and deploy increasing levels of zero carbon energy, such as Renewable Natural Gas and hydrogen. Learn more.

Methane and Emissions Reduction

We’ve demonstrated leadership when it comes to taking action to drive lower emissions and control methane in NJNG’s system – while continuing to provide safe, reliable service. To date, NJNG operates the most environmentally friendly system in the state, as measured by leaks per mile.

Coastal Climate Initiative™

Building on our record of environmental responsibility and sustainability leadership, NJR has launched its Coastal Climate Initiative, which helps fight climate change in the communities we serve.

Through this program, we’re supporting the mission of The Nature Conservancy in New Jersey, an environmental nonprofit with over 60 years of experience working to protect water and lands in New Jersey, to restore saltwater tidal wetlands in the Barnegat Bay.

The SAVEGREEN Project®

NJNG’s The SAVEGREEN Project puts energy efficiency in reach with rebates and incentives – including a 0% APR On-Bill Repayment Program – to help make equipment upgrades and whole-house solutions affordable.*

In fiscal 2021, SAVEGREEN invested $31.7 million in a variety of programs to support the installation of new and efficient equipment, resulting in an annual savings of nearly 4.3 million therms or nearly 23,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2). This is equivalent to the annual energy usage of 2,760 homes.

Over the next three years, through SAVEGREEN, we will invest up to $259 million in energy efficiency alongside our customers.

Through SAVEGREEN, NJNG can help customers save more than 128 million therms of natural gas, preventing the emission of over 677,000 metric tons of CO2 – the equivalent of taking 146,000 cars off th
