Overview
The Methane Partners Campaign is a coalition of groups working to reduce methane pollution from oil and gas operations. Methane is a potent global warming pollutant. Oil and gas production and distribution are responsible for a third of all U.S. methane emissions. The United States has pledged to reduce methane emissions 40-45 percent by 2025. The Methane Partners Campaign supports federal and state policies to achieve that goal.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Climate Action Campaign  
The Partnership Project hosts the Climate Action Campaign a group of national environmental organizations and influential partners that conducts coordinated efforts to slow and stop attacks on climate and clean energy progress.
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.
