During the climate summit of the RES countries, which began on Sunday in Glasgow, the project called Global Methane Pledge was inaugurated. Its co-author is the European Union.
This initiative aims to reduce methane emissions by at least 30% between 2020 and 2030, which should be able to limit the increase in global temperature by 0.2 degrees C by 2050.
The project has been signed by 105 UN countries, which in total are to be responsible for about 40% of global methane emissions. There were no signatures, among others China, Russia and India, as well as Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary.
