World leaders at the COP26 summit in Glasgow, Scotland, have pledged to cut methane emissions by 30% by 2030, reported by ILM.

Put forward by the U.S. and EU, the Global Methane Pledge has brought together more than 100 countries, representing 70% of the global economy and nearly half of anthropogenic methane emissions.

Ahead of the pledge, U.S. President Joe Biden will be implementing multiple policies to tackle methane emissions in the U.S. Although these will focus primarily on the oil and gas industry, the U.S. Department of Agriculture will also work to expand the voluntary adoption of climate-smart agriculture practices that will reduce methane emissions from key agriculture sources by incentivising the deployment of improved manure management systems, anaerobic digesters, new livestock feeds, composting and other practices.

According to the European Commission, delivering on the Global Methane Pledge would reduce warming by at least 0.2°C by 2050.
