Learn about Methane Emissions

Why Focus on Methane Emissions?

Methane is a potent greenhouse gas that leaves the atmosphere more quickly than carbon dioxide but traps more heat while it is there – as much as 36 times more over a 100-year timescale, according to the International Energy Agency.

Methane is responsible for about 30% of the rise in global temperatures since the start of the Industrial Revolution. The UN estimates that a 45% drop in anthropogenic methane emissions would prevent about 0.3°C of warming by 2045. Although methane comes from a variety of sources, minimizing methane emissions from the energy sector is one of the most efficient ways to make a dent in climate change.
