Más de 100 países se comprometen a reducir las emisiones de metano

November 2, 2021 - Más de 100 países se han unido al Compromiso Global por el Metano – una iniciativa liderada por EUA y la UE para reducir las emisiones del potente gas de efecto invernadero en por lo menos 30 por ciento para la próxima década.

The pledge, launched at the COP26 summit in Glasgow on Tuesday after being announced in September, now covers countries representing nearly half of global methane emissions and 70 percent of global GDP, U.S. President Joe Biden said.

Among the new signatories was Brazil – one of the world’s five biggest emitters of methane.

China, Russia and India, also top-five methane emitters, have not signed on to the pledge. Those countries were all included on a list identified as targets to join the pledge, first reported by Reuters.
