Global Methane Initiative
Launched in 2004, the GMI is an international public-private initiative that advances cost-effective, near-term methane abatement and recovery and use of methane as a clean energy source in three sectors: biogas (including agriculture, municipal solid waste, and wastewater), coal mines, and oil and gas systems. Working in collaboration with other international organizations, the Initiative has formed key alliances with partners such as the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) to reduce global methane emissions. Focusing collective efforts on methane emission sources is a cost-effective approach to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and increase energy security, enhance economic growth, improve air quality and improve worker safety.
During the 2018 Global Methane Forum, GMI Partners reaffirmed their commitment to the Initiative in the Global Methane Initiative Communiqué: Momentum on Methane (PDF, 2 pp), a consensus statement on GMI’s accomplishments over the last 10 years, as well as priorities for the future.
