For more information on RMI's work to reduce methane emissions from the oil and gas industry, email firstname.lastname@example.org The Methane Strategy emphasises that the EU, as the world's largest importer of fossil fuels, has both the responsibility and the capacity to promote the reduction of global energy-related methane emissions In light of the new EU strategy, natural gas suppliers will need to ensure the legitimacy of their claims with respect to methane emissions. The EU's satellite program and support for the creation of an international methane emissions observatory will aid international transparency and validation of these claims Regrettably, the leaked Methane Strategy barely refers to the fact that lifestyle and diet changes could also contribute substantially to reducing EU methane emissions, without any further elaboration on how this critically important measure should be pursued in practice The Methane Strategyidentifies actions to accelerate the reductions of methane emissions in line with that ambition. The EU first addressed methane emissions with a strategy adopted in 1996. In the following years, the EU adopted regulatory initiatives that contributed to methane emission reductions in key sectors
strategy also looks at reducing methane emissions at global level. Indeed, the Commission notes that while the EU contributes only to 5 percent of global methane emissions, it can use its position as th Reducing methane emissions is therefore a key part of the EU's strategy to meet its goal of being climate neutral by 2050.
