Methane Resources is a platform that helps governments, businesses, NGOs, and others seize a vital climate opportunity by addressing methane emissions.
Methane is a short-lived but powerful greenhouse gas, 80 times more powerful than carbon dioxide over 20 years. This gas accounts for about 30% of current warming.
Because methane lives in the atmosphere for a short time, actions taken today can rapidly slow the warming of our planet. In conjunction with decarbonization, methane reduction presents a critical opportunity to keep Earth from crossing the 1.5-degree guardrail, after which catastrophic feedback loops become far more likely.
For humans, methane represents wasted energy. As a result, significant economic benefits can be achieved by refining systems that generate methane.
The Methane Frameworks are guides that help city, state, and national governments to create jobs, improve community health, and reach their climate goals by cutting methane emissions. Browse the Frameworks by sector below.
