Communication published by the European Commission on 14 October 2020, setting out a strategy for the reduction of methane emissions in the European Union (EU).
The Impact Assessment for the EU's 2030 Climate Target Plan concluded that stepping up the level of ambition for reductions in greenhouse-gas emissions to at least 55% by 2030 would require an accelerated effort to tackle methane emissions.
This strategy sets out measures to cut methane emissions in Europe and internationally. It presents legislative and non-legislative actions in the energy, agriculture and waste sectors, which account for around 95% of methane emissions associated with human activity worldwide. The Commission is also set to work with the EU's international partners and with industry to achieve emission reductions along the supply chain.
