“Natural gas will play a significant role in the energy transition but to reach its full potential, we must reduce methane leaks across the natural gas value chain. By working across sectors and focusing on the detection, measurement, and mitigation of methane emissions, new technology solutions will emerge that will allow us to maximize the climate advantage of natural gas. WGC brings together the world’s foremost players who are working to effect change in this critical area”
