What is Certified Natural Gas?

Certified Natural Gas is natural gas that is produced by companies whose operations are independently verified as meeting or exceeding industry recognized environmental, social, and governance standards.

Methane traps up to 20 times more heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide. There are a number of ways to reduce methane emissions, including reducing leaks from the production, storage, and transportation of natural gas. Certified gas wells, however, can reduce methane emissions up to 80% from traditional wells.

In offering this environmental-friendly solution we are lowering emissions through cleaner sourcing and production. To learn more about Certified Natural Gas and WGL Energy’s other green solutions visit or call 1-833-61-GREEN (1-833-614-7336) to speak with one of our energy experts.
