ENERGY FILLED STORY

Happy anniversary Earth Day!

On April 22, 1970, the first Earth Day marked the birth of a much-needed environmental movement. Today, millions of people across nearly 200 countries will recognize the 50th anniversary of this groundbreaking event. This spirit of global cooperation is more important and relevant than ever, and we must all work together to help curb the climate emergency.

Here at NFE, we’re working to do our part by providing liquefied natural gas (LNG), a cleaner and greener energy source. We have the privilege of operating in some of the most beautiful locations on earth, and helping to protect the environment in these places is something we are very proud of. By transitioning to LNG, our customers – from Jamaica’s Clarendon Distillers, University of the West Indies, and Jamaica Urban Transit Company, to a resort community in The Bahamas, and beyond – are realizing significant environmental wins for their communities.

Collectively, we have helped our customers achieve a 30 percent reduction in CO2 emissions - that's the equivalent of planting 10mm+ trees or removing 145k+ cars from the road annually.

Moreover, LNG is a proven entry point to the widespread adoption of renewable energy sources such as solar and wind. That’s why LNG is only the first step toward our ultimate goal of making zero-emissions energy available worldwide. To help make that goal a reality, we’ve formed a division called Zero, which aims to transform our company into one of the world’s leading 100% carbon-free power providers by transitioning to renewable, green hydrogen. Replacing the world’s use of fossil fuels with renewable hydrogen will improve our planet in infinite ways, and we’re excited to be taking the lead on making clean, green hydrogen the world’s go-to energy source.

We encourage you to join us in these and other efforts to protect the Earth – on the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, and every day.
