Countries around the globe are working to reduce emissions within their borders. They also have an opportunity to lower the emissions embedded in the import of fuel and other goods. But effective policies require solid data.
METHANE WATCH HELPS THE PUBLIC SECTOR WITH:
Signatories to the Paris Agreement must submit annual inventories of greenhouse gas emissions to the UNFCCC. The Methane Watch allows governments to compile more accurate inventories based on hard data rather than bottom-up assumptions.
Environmental policies will achieve the greatest impact at the lowest cost only if they are based on an accurate view of the different types and volume of emitters. The Methane Watch allows regulators to design measures such as the European Union’s proposed carbon border tax,and monitor their impact in near-realtime.
Regulators can ensure compliance with environmental regulations such as emissions performance standards in coal mining and bans on venting in the oil & gas sector.
