By Stephen Nakrosis

Southern Co. on Wednesday announced a long-term greenhouse gas emissions reduction goal of net zero emissions by 2050.

The company said to achieve its goal, it will "continue to reduce GHG emissions and continue our long-term commitment to energy efficiency, but also incorporate negative carbon solutions, including technology-based approaches such as direct air capture of carbon as well as natural methods like afforestation."

Southern Co. also reaffirmed an intermediate goal of a 50% reduction of GHG emissions from 2007 levels by 2030. "Carbon emissions have decreased by 44% through 2019, and the company now expects to achieve the 50% reduction goal well in advance of 2030, and possibly as early as 2025."
