Opportunities for Enhanced Near-term U.S.-China Climate Action: Reducing Methane Emissions in the U.S. and China
June 22 @ 5:00 pm - 6:15 pm
As two of the largest global economies and energy consumers, China and the U.S. are also the top and third largest methane emitters, respectively. Both nations have significant opportunities to reduce their methane emissions over the next decade, with some methods of reduction having low or no costs associated. In the U.S., it’s estimated that a total reduction potential of 224 million metric tons of CO₂ equivalent (Mt CO₂e) can be achieved through abatement measures costing $100/t CO₂e or less by 2030. Meanwhile, in China, the potential for methane reduction is predicted to reach 469 Mt CO₂e in 2030, which is equivalent to a 35% decrease from 2015 levels. Join us to hear from issue-experts, sharing insights from a new report, Reducing Methane Emissions in the U.S. and China.
