The oil and gas sector is one of the biggest man-made emission sources of methane, close to farming and waste. It creates around one-fourth of worldwide anthropogenic methane emissions.
The Oil and Gas Climate Initiative is buckling down with its individuals to rapidly scale up to significant activities and innovations to more readily decrease and keep methane emissions from the oil and gas worth chain. The Global Methane Alliance is one of a kind chance to quicken methane decrease and the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative is glad to give the specialized help and learning sharing to make it fruitful.
