Turkey was welcomed into GMI on 30 September 2010 and participates in the Coal Mines, Municipal Solid Waste, and Oil and Gas Subcommittees. Based on data in EPA's Global Anthropogenic Emissions of Non-CO2 Greenhouse Gases report, in 2010, Turkey's estimated anthropogenic methane emissions ranked 12th in the world. Oil and natural gas systems represent half of Turkey's anthropogenic methane emissions—57.20 MMTCO2E—and an additional 26 percent (28.85 MMTCO2E) come from agriculture (manure management), coal mining, municipal solid waste, and wastewater. In particular, Turkey expressed interest in developing clean energy opportunities for use of methane captured from it large coal reserves.

Türkiye de GMI’a 30 Eylül 2010’da kabul edildi ve Kömür Madenleri, Arazi Doldurma ve Petrol ve Doğal Gaz Alt Komiteleri’nde yer alacak. EPA’nın CO2 Dışındaki Sera Gazları Kaynaklı Global Antropojenik Emisyonlar raporu verilerine göre, 2010 yılında Türkiye’de insan kaynaklı metan emisyonları dünya sıralamasında 12’ni oldu. Petrol ve doğal gaz sistemleri Türkiye’deki antropojenik metan emisyonlarının yarısını oluşturuyor —57.20 MMTCO2E— ve buna ek olarak yüzde 26 oranında (28.85 MMTCO2E) tarım (gübre yönetimi), kömür madeniliği, arazi doldurma ve atık su emisyonu söz konusu. Türkiye özellikle geniş kömür rezervlerinden elde edilecek metanla temiz enerji yaratma fırsatları konusuyla ilgilendiğini ifade etti.
