Mais de 100 países comprometem-se a reduzir emissões de metano
November 2, 2021 -
Os países do Compromisso Global do Metano comprometem-se com um objetivo de redução das emissões do potente gás de efeito de estufa em
pelo menos 30 por cento relativamente aos níveis de 2020 até 2030.
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.
