Reducing methane emissions

Methane is a far more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, but it stays in the atmosphere for a shorter time. So reducing methane emissions can result in an important near-term reduction in the pace of global warming.

How is the oil and gas industry tackling methane?

Currently, almost a third of anthropogenic methane comes from the oil and gas industry. But that is changing: in the past few years, a handful of start-ups, backed by OGCI Climate Investments, have helped the sector cut emissions, rapidly. This series will explore the methane opportunity: what it is, why it matters, and how the OGCI is investing for change.
