Methane action at National Oil Companies

Methane action at National Oil Companies: An opportunity for deep cuts in global methane emissions

As the largest producers of oil and gas globally, National Oil Companies are critical stakeholders to achieving deep cuts in global methane emissions. However, barring few exceptions these companies continue to lag behind their privately owned counterparts on managing and mitigating methane emissions from their operations.

As governments, capital markets and others in industry turn their attention to Paris-aligned climate action, controlling and reducing methane emissions will increasingly become a competitive concern for NOCs.

This new report published by Carbon Limits examines the essential role of NOCs to accelerate methane reduction, addresses current challenges and offers potential solutions for governments, members of industry, civil society and the financial sector to motivate NOC action on methane management.
