Global Methane Forum 2020 (GMF 2020) is an event sponsored by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and the Global Methane Initiative (GMI). 

A five-day-long conference titled Taking Action for Sustainable Energy and a Clean Environment will feature:

  • Presentations about proven, innovative methane mitigation techniques and productive uses of recovered methane;
  • Recognition celebration for participants in the Global Methane Challenge;
  • Joint meetings of UNECE Group of Experts and GMI Sub-Committees.

Details about the Forum as well as all relevant documents will be posted under the respective tabs on the bottom of this page, as well as at globalmethane.org/gmf2020. Please check both websites for updates.

Participants will follow three separate thematic tracks on methane emissions from the coal, oil and gas, and bio-gas sectors.

Plenary Session

On Tuesday, 24 March, all attendees will gather in Salle XXI for a cross-cutting plenary session featuring high-level speakers from governments, international organizations, and industry.

The two panel discussions that will follow the keynote speeches will address the financial aspects of methane mitigation, with special attention to the costs and consequences of inaction, and will attempt to identify the most effective drivers of action to reduce emissions, focusing on regulation, industry voluntary action, innovation, and coordination of efforts of various stakeholders across different extractive industries at any stage of their value chains.
