Action towards a net zero future

The Southern Company system has set a greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction goal of net zero emissions by 2050. We put customers at the center of everything we do, building a sustainable workforce and making sure that communities are better off because we’re there. This approach is embedded in our values and our DNA, and we know that it is the right way to drive long-term performance.

In 2020, the system reduced GHG emissions 52% from its 2007 benchmark levels, exceeding its intermediate 2030 goal to reduce GHG emissions by 50%. Our history of performance and the partnerships we've fostered with business, government and research institutes make our progressive energy solutions a reality.
