How We Work

The Methane Guiding Principles partnership is a voluntary initiative. Our work developing interactive tools, guides and hands-on courses to reduce methane emissions is led and funded by its member organisations. They are supported by a secretariat under a dedicated Programme Manager.

  • Chris Rathbun joined as Programme Manager in June 2022

Steering Committee
