Methane 101 Overview Deck
We are reducing the carbon intensity of the fuels used to produce and transport goods.
What Is the Energy Inputs Initiative?
Tackling methane emissions from oil and gas production presents an important opportunity to make an immediate impact on mitigating climate change. We are partnering with oil and gas companies, governments, and civil society to eliminate fugitive methane emissions from the oil and gas value chain, aiming for an 80 percent reduction by 2050.
Why It Matters
Natural gas is currently the primary fuel powering heavy industry. But natural gas has a problem: it leaks methane, a superpotent greenhouse gas (GHG) that has a short-term impact on climate over 80 times greater than an equivalent amount of CO2. Although we are working to displace the use of fossil fuels with electrification, increased uptake of biofuels, and future fuels like hydrogen, there are no near- or medium-term alternatives for many industrial applications.
