House of Lords Select Committee launches Call for Evidence on methane

The House of Lords’ Select Committee Call for Evidence on methane is part of an inquiry into the progress the UK has made as a signatory of the Global Methane Pledge.

The pledge is a commitment to reduce global methane emissions by at least 30% from 2020 levels by 2030.

The inquiry is looking at progress made across a range of industries including agriculture, fossil fuels and waste.

For agriculture, the Call for Evidence is interested in technologies and policies to help reduce methane emissions, how reducing methane emissions needs to be balanced with food security, and measurements and metrics for methane eg, GWP*.

Also relevant is the question on what more could be done to collect food waste separately from landfill.
