New GES-paper on methane emissions

Methane is the second most important climate gas after CO2. Its negative impact on the climate per molecule is significantly higher than that of CO2. And the concentration of methane in the atmosphere steadily increases. GES comments on this important field of action as follows: Reducing methane emissions along different value chains is relatively easy to achieve and has a high leverage effect. This is especially true for anthropogenic sources, such as in the oil and gas sector, but also for agricultural sectors, such as rice cultivation and livestock farming. A well-thought-out strategy to reduce methane emissions must therefore be a mandatory part of today’s climate protection activities.
