Strategic Alliances

Since the GMI was first launched, the global community's interest in addressing methane has grown significantly. To improve collaboration on methane activities, the GMI has aligned with two critical partners - the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) and the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE).

CCAC

Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC)

CCAC is a voluntary partnership dedicated to reducing short-lived climate pollutants. CCAC Partners are working on-the-ground to reduce methane from municipal solid waste in cities all over the world, cooperating with the private sector to address methane from upstream oil and gas operations, and helping farmers to address agricultural emissions. The GMI collaborates with CCAC to enhance peer-to-peer cooperation on oil and gas, the largest industrial source of methane globally.

UNECE

United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE)

UNECE, one of five regional commissions of the United Nations, helps countries meet sustainable development goals. The UNECE’s Committee on Sustainable Energy established the Group of Experts on Coal Mine Methane (CMM), which carries out activities related to sustainable development and profitable recovery and use of CMM and abandoned mine methane (AMM). These activities mitigate climate change, improve mine safety and productivity, and generate revenue and cost savings. UNECE also established the Group of Experts on Natural Gas to promote the sustainable and clean production, distribution, and consumption of natural gas in the UNECE region. Through these groups, UNECE develops and disseminates best practice guidance and brings together stakeholders and experts in the coal mining and oil and gas sectors.
