Overview
The Partnership Project provides funding to a coalition of environmental, health, and labor groups working to support and strengthen federal regulations to reduce methane emissions from oil and gas production in the United States. The federal government is developing regulations to cut methane emissions by 40 to 45 percent by 2025. Methane accounts for nearly 10 percent of U.S. climate emissions, and is up to 80 times more potent than carbon. Limiting methane pollution is an essential part of any comprehensive strategy to tackle climate change.
