The first batch of Sakhalin II carbon neutral LNG was delivered to Japan for Toho Gas. LNG's carbon neutrality was achieved by purchasing carbon credits from one of the company's shareholder divisions, Gazprom Marketing & Trading Ltd.

According to Roman Dashkov, CEO of Sakhalin Energy, the Japanese government is committed to achieving the stated goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050.
“Successful cooperation with buyers in the Asia-Pacific region, as well as the work that Sakhalin Energy is carrying out in the field of decarbonization of the entire LNG chain from production to the end consumer, allows us to take the supply of Sakhalin gas to Japan to a qualitatively new level,” he added.
