Methane emissions finally got attention when the science conclusively showed the importance of reducing methane emission urgently to maintain the goal of the Paris Agreement. At COP26 the EU and US launched the Global Methane Pledge, and in December 2021 the European Commission proposed legislation to address methane emissions in the energy sector.
Our EU energy methane campaign focuses on getting the draft legislation improved and approved. We do that through working with many European stakeholder such as NGOs, think-tanks, business and government officials, including from the European Institutions and in selected member states.
