November 15th: gas flaring news

Clearly, the big news from last week was the historic Glasgow deal at COP26 (see full text here). The Global Methane Pledge is probably one of the most significant commitments made by over 104 countries. We applaud this achievement – and now it’s time to act.

In order to act, focussing here on gas flaring as a major contributor to methane, we think at least 3 key requirements. Firstly, we need;/agree to set a clear baseline on flaring emissions, secondly, we need to use credible, transparent and independent data to monitor our progress. Thirdly, we need to mobilise capital, and fourthly, to enhance technical and delivery capabilities.
