MDU Resources Publishes 2021 Sustainability Report

MDU Resources has published its 2021 Sustainability Report. Some of the highlights outlined in the report include:

  • Ceasing operations at all wholly owned coal-fired electric generation facilities, with more economical options available to supply energy to customers. This will further reduce the company’s greenhouse gas emissions intensity as it makes progress toward its target of a 45% reduction from owned electric generation facilities by 2030 compared to 2005 levels.
  • Recording all scope 1 and scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions across the corporation, which will establish 2022 corporatewide baselines to help define reduction targets.
  • Joining the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion Pledge, further committing the company to diversity, equity and inclusion actions in the workplace.
  • Tying executive officer incentive compensation to diversity, equity and inclusion results, further encouraging management to emphasize and achieve initiatives.

MDU Resources Group Inc. has also committed its natural gas pipeline business to a near-term methane emissions intensity reduction target of 25% by 2030, compared to its 2020 levels. 

“Natural gas will remain a foundational fuel in the effort to achieve a cleaner energy future, and we are committed to minimizing emissions as we provide the infrastructure to transport gas to markets where it is needed,” said David L. Goodin, president and CEO of MDU Resources.
