A new joint agreement by the European Union and the United States to cut global methane emissions by 30 per cent by 2030 could mark a crucial step in tackling climate change and getting the world closer to the goals of the Paris Agreement to keep global temperature rise to below 2°C.

The announcement on Friday, which ushered in the start of what is hoped to be a ‘the Global Methane Pledge,’ will see the agreement formally launched at the United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties COP26, to be held in Glasgow from 31 October and 12 November.
