The Methane Guiding Principles partnership is a voluntary initiative comprising of Signatories and Supporting Organisations. Signatories and Supporting Organisations recognise the importance of improving performance on managing methane emissions and are committed to advancing the Methane Guiding Principles.
Our Signatories are companies with direct responsibility for the management of methane within their business activities in the oil and gas sector.
A Supporting Organisation is a global or major regional organisation which does not have responsibilities for the management of methane but which has significant expertise on methane.
Shell is the interim Secretariat for the partnership. The role of the Secretariat is to run the administration of the Methane Guiding Principles and set the annual workplan.
From 2020, the Methane Guiding Principles will have a dedicated Programme Manager, supported by a Decision Review Board comprising representatives from three Signatories and three Supporting Organisations.
If you would like further information on the Methane Guiding Principles, please contact email@example.com.
The Steering Committee is the governance and decision-making body of the Methane Guiding Principles and approves the annual workplan. Its philosophy is light-touch, collaborative, inclusive and action-oriented. Signatories and Supporting Organisations each have one senior representative on the Steering Committee and meet at an annual roundtable.
