The Challenge 

The Global Methane Challenge is your chance to tell the world what you are doing to reduce methane emissions. Whether you are ready to make a new commitment or want to highlight an ongoing effort, we want to showcase it here.

Why methane?

  • Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas, and emissions are on the rise
  • Methane is a short-lived climate pollutant, so reductions made now can have significant short-term benefits
  • Cost-effective technologies to capture and use methane are widely available today

Here are some ideas for how you can participate:

  • Monitor methane emissions and create an emissions inventory.

  • Develop an action plan for reducing emissions in one or more sectors.

  • Provide technical or financial support to a methane mitigation project.

  • Educate the public about methane emissions and abatement opportunities.

  • Showcase a methane mitigation project or technology.
