Entergy provides update on its progress to net-zero carbon emissions
Entergy is taking additional actions on climate change while maintaining our commitment to safely providing reliable, affordable and cleaner energy for customers and communities. Entergy recently published our latest climate report as an update to stakeholders and to provide transparency on our progress to achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. In the report, Entergy reaffirmed our commitment to net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 and discussed two interim carbon emission reduction targets. First, Entergy expect 50% of our power generation capacity will come from clean, carbon-free energy generating capacity sources by 2030, which is a new goal established as of the latest climate report. Second, Entergy will reduce our carbon dioxide emissions rate by 50%, including owned and purchased power generation, from 2000 base-year emissions by 2030. Entergy also reaffirmed plans to retire all coal-powered generating plants by the end of 2030. Entergy is one of the first utilities to address the totality of carbon emissions across its value chain – that is, Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions of all applicable greenhouse gases from all Entergy businesses.
