We released the expanded @IEA Global #Methane Tracker today with our latest estimates of emissions and abatement potential. šŸ”—iea.li/methane

For the first time, we've built in info on policies and regulations. I want to highlight a few interesting findings.

1/9
Over 110 countries joined the #GlobalMethanePledge last year, which targets a 30% reduction in human-caused methane by 2030.

But without concrete policies and regulations, the world won't meet this target. Voluntary action by companies alone won't be enough.

2/9
Today's new policies page of the Tracker shows what tried and tested policies can achieve.

These policies have already been proven effective. If every country adopted them, emissions from the oil and gas sector could be cut in half.

The #GlobalMethanePledge is being launched now at COP26. Result of a massive diplomatic effort by the #EU and the #US, the pledge has now joined over 80 signatories, covering over 2/3 of the global GDP and about 46% of the global #methane emissions. 1/8 unfccc-cop26.streamworld.de/webcast/high-lā€¦
The signatories pledge to cut 30% of global CH4 emissions by 2030, targeting all major emitting sectors #agriculture, #waste, #energy. This is a major step forward & the first time CH4 made it to the top of Global Leaders' priorities list. Many more steps needed looking ahead 2/8
The pledge covers emissions that can be reduced via targeted measures - a lot, but not enough to keep CH4 emissions aligned with 1.5C goal. another 10-15% of reductions must take place via indirect measures incl. #energyefficiency and changes in energy consumption patterns 3/8
