Last updated: 18 August 2015

The Global Methane Initiative (GMI) includes forty-one governments, the European Commission, the Asian Development Bank, and the Inter-American Development Bank.

The GMI builds on the existing structure and success of the 'Methane to Markets Partnership' to reduce emissions of methane, while enhancing and expanding these efforts and encouraging new resource commitments from country partners.

The GMI is an international public-private initiative that advances cost effective, near-term methane recovery and use as a clean energy source in five sectors: agriculture, coal mines, landfills, oil and gas systems, and wastewater.
