Why Methane?

  • 01
    Immediate Impact
    Methane's global warming potential is over 80 times greater than CO2 in a 20-year timeframe. Addressing this short-lived climate pollutant is key to limiting temperature rise to 1.5 °C.
  • 02
    Waste Sector Significance
    The waste sector accounts for about 20% of methane emissions and is the third largest source after agriculture and oil and gas. Curbing emissions from waste is vital to global methane reduction efforts.
  • 03
    Co-benefits for communities
    Mitigating methane from the waste sector reduces both VOCs and ground-level ozone, fostering a healthier environment and directly enhancing community wellbeing.
  • 04
    Economic Benefits
    There are local economic benefits through job creation from improved waste collection, treatment, and disposal.
