Natural Gas and the Environment

As is the case with natural gas safety, environmental considerations are strongly factored into how we operate. CenterPoint Energy attempts to preserve vegetative growth where possible and we work closely with officials in preservation of areas and species.

Any vegetation disturbed by CenterPoint Energy will be restored as nearly as possible to its original condition, normal wear and tear excepted. Natural gas is a clean-burning fuel that has less impact on the environment, leaving about half the carbon footprint of electricity. We strive to be good stewards of the environment. We are committed to responsible actions that can help reduce emissions, ensure ample natural gas supply and control costs for our customers.
