Since November 2016, the vast majority of Gaz Métro’s supplies has come from the Dawn hub, in southern Ontario. This decision was prompted by the Régie de l’énergie, which has been urging Gaz Métro to move its supply structure closer to the markets it serves.
Meanwhile, gas supplies are an integral part of Gaz Métro’s responsible procurement process. The end goals are to identify which gas producers have the best sustainable development practices, and to be able to improve traceability in order to know more precisely where and how the gas is produced.
At Gaz Métro, while we understand and absolutely share the ambition of making a low-carbon world, we are also convinced of the necessity of remaining pragmatic when establishing an action plan. That is why we believe that by maximizing our efforts to encourage our customers to be more energy-efficient, by injecting 5% biomethane content in our gas network, by reducing the impacts all along the supply chain, and by focusing on markets where natural gas can make a real difference in the emissions that are currently being produced, in particular by displacing petroleum products (which inherently emit more greenhouse gases), we can concretely help reduce greenhouse gases and contribute to the transition towards a lower-carbon economy. This is notably the case in industry sectors and regions.
