Curtailing methane emissions from fossil fuel operations: Pathways to a 75% cut by 2030

The IEA’s new report, “Pathways to a 75% cut in methane emissions from fossil fuel operations by 2030,” explores practical measures that governments and companies can take to secure deep reductions in methane emissions from fossil fuel operations as envisioned in the IEA’s Net Zero by 2050 Roadmap. Building on the estimates of emissions and abatement options in the IEA Methane Tracker, we quantify the potential impact of a range of measures, including policy and regulatory action, voluntary industry initiatives and improvements in transparency of emissions data. By identifying the different measures and approaches that can limit methane emissions, this analysis aims to provide insights and guidance for decision-makers in the lead-up to COP26 and beyond.
