Action guide: Reducing methane emissions from oil and gas operations

31 January 2020, 13:12 GMT

State and regional governments in the Under2 Coalition are taking action to address methane emissions from the oil and gas industry. 

This Action Guide has been developed as part of the Under2 Coalition Methane Project and draws on both the work of the project and other examples of government strategy, showcasing policy actions state and regional governments are implementing in their jurisdictions. It is designed to serve as a tool for policymakers looking for successful state-level examples of curbing methane emissions.

During the first phase of the project, Under2 Coalition governments explored both proven and emerging approaches to measuring and reducing methane emissions through a series of webinars and case studies. Participants also engaged with industry experts and connected with global methane initiatives. 

The Climate Group will continue to support state and regional governments to reduce methane emissions through phase two of the Methane Project which will bring together a committed group of governments for in-depth learning on policy options to reduce emissions.
