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.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Climate Advocacy Lab and Methane Partners Campaign  
The Partnership Project will use Hewlett funding to support two programs: the Climate Advocacy Lab and the Methane Partners Campaign. The Climate Advocacy Lab helps climate and clean energy advocates run more effective campaigns by providing support for polling, data analytics, social science expertise, experimentation, and other tools. The Lab makes research and experimentation results available to its nearly 2,000 member groups though an online platform. The Methane Partners Campaign is a coordinated effort by many state and national organizations to defend and implement — and eventually strengthen — regulations to reduce methane emissions from oil and gas drilling. The Campaign is working to preserve EPA authority to regulate methane, defend strong rules that limit methane emissions from new oil and gas production sites, and build support for reducing methane emissions among state and federal decision makers.
for the Americans for Public Lands campaign  
The Partnership Project is seeking to launch a new effort with this grant funding to coordinate public lands defensive efforts by the broader environmental community.
for the Climate Action Campaign  
The Partnership Project hosts the Climate Action Coalition, a group of national environmental organizations and influential partners that conducts coordinated efforts to slow and stop attacks on climate and clean energy progress.
