As national governments look to make good on their commitments under the Global Methane Pledge (GMP), a powerful and newly updated tool from Clean Air Task Force (CATF) is helping to turn ambition into action with accessible emissions benchmarking and policy development capabilities.
“The Global Methane Pledge saw more than 150 countries commit to reducing global methane emissions 30% by 2030,” said Jonathan Banks, Global Director, Methane Pollution Prevention at Clean Air Task Force. “But successful implementation will require robust inventories of national emissions and the development of effective national mitigation policies, neither of which are always available nor easy for countries to develop. Our new digital platform helps close gaps in country level emissions data and policy expertise to rapidly reduce methane emissions and keep global climate goals within reach. With support from our team, several countries are already using the Country Methane Abatement Tool, or CoMAT, to successfully benchmark methane emissions from their oil and gas sectors and develop effective mitigation strategies with the potential to meet their Global Methane Pledge targets.” Read more.
