Methane is a powerful climate pollutant, responsible for around 30% of the rise in global temperatures since pre-industrial times and is the second largest contributor to global warming after CO₂. Tackling methane emissions is one of the lowest cost opportunities to make progress in the short-term on our climate goals, to help limit near-term global temperature rise, improve air quality, and accelerate progress towards a net-zero economy. Canada’s Ambassador for Climate Change will lead this event, highlighting the importance of climate finance and innovative and collaborative partnerships in achieving ambitious methane reduction goals under the Global Methane Pledge.
