OUR Pathway

At EPIF, we’re dedicated to leading the transition to a low-carbon future. Join us on this journey towards sustainability.

Our Pathway

At EPIF, we’re committed to transitioning towards a sustainable, net-zero future. Our comprehensive transition plan outlines clear steps for each segment of our operations in achieving this goal. The primary objective when developing our decarbonization goals and emission reduction pathways was to ensure alignment with scientific principles and the Paris Agreement’s aim to limit global warming to no more than 1.5°C. To achieve this, we aimed to align our pathway with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), which is widely regarded as the gold standard for science-based target setting.

Coal Phase-out by 2030

We have a roadmap to phase out coal across our Heat infrastructure operations by 2030 at the latest.

Carbon neutrality by 2040

We aim to end combustion of fossil fuels by 2040, eliminating CO2

Net Zero Operations by 2050

Our aim is to achieve net zero operations in respect of Scope 1 & 2 emissions by 2050. This entails elimination of our methane leakage across the gas infrastructure.

Methane Emissions Reduction

We’re committed to reducing methane emissions in our gas infrastructure in line with the Global Methane Pledge, i.e. at least 30% by 2030 compared to 2022.

Scope 3 Emissions

We are actively working on measurement and reduction of our Scope 3 emissions. We will publish our Scope 3 emissions as part of the ESG disclosure in the first half of 2025 which covers the year 2024.

Transition to Renewable Gases

As renewable gases become available on a commercial scale, we plan to convert to these sustainable alternatives.

We Believe in Hydrogen and Renewable Gases

EPIF aims to be a major player in the adoption of hydrogen. Leveraging our unique, geographically strategic position, we’re investing in hydrogen-dedicated research and development projects. Initiatives like the EU Hydrogen Backbone and the Central European Hydrogen Corridor highlight the critical need for robust infrastructure to transport and store a diverse mix of gases. To address disparities in hydrogen production and consumption across Europe, establishing a robust transit and storage infrastructure is vital. Our current gas infrastructure is anticipated to undergo conversion to accommodate the transportation of these gases.
