Atmos Energy receives environment awards

Atmos Energy has been honored with two awards from the Environmental Protection Agency for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

At the 13th annual Natural Gas STAR Implementation Workshop, Atmos Energy was selected as the natural gas distribution company Partner of the Year in the EPA's 2006 Natural Gas STAR Program. Annually, the EPA chooses a partner of the year from each of the four natural gas industry sectors: production; gathering and processing; transmission and storage; and distribution.

Atmos Energy also received a Continuing Excellence award from the EPA for five years of improvement in the STAR Program. The STAR Program is a voluntary partnership between the EPA and the natural gas industry to encourage voluntary reductions in the emissions of methane. Atmos Energy joined the Natural Gas STAR program in 1999.
