Sustainability is a natural extension of Southern Star’s vision of one community working together to be the leading provider of clean, safe and reliable energy for tomorrow. As demand for sustainable energy continues to grow, Southern Star is positioned to continue meeting the needs of the communities where we live and work through responsible environmental, social and governance practices. We are dedicated to finding ways to reduce energy and water consumption at our facilities, restoring areas impacted by construction back to their original state, and increasing recycling efforts across our system. Southern Star is committed to a 50-percent reduction of methane emissions by 2025, with a goal of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. A solar array was installed at Southern Star’s headquarters, generating enough electricity to offset the facility’s power demand. This addition made our headquarters the first known net zero carbon-based energy facility of its size in Owensboro, KY. Southern Star serves our communities through outreach efforts, engagement, and partnerships. We help fuel the quality of life within the communities where we work and operate through volunteerism and corporate giving. Team members give their time and talent to local non-profit and youth organizations across our footprint, including STEM and robotics programs in local schools.Strong, ethical leadership is the foundation of Southern Star’s culture of safety, reliability, and sustainability. At every level, Southern Star team members are empowered to take responsibility and accountability in the operation of our transmission system.
