#GIEAnnualConference 2021 welcomed #energy leaders from various horizons.

Day 1 started strong with exclusive insights from #Switzerland🇨🇭 to Brussels 🇪🇺.
Gas infrastructure also presented its most exciting projects for #decarbonisation.


Last week, we were all #backtogether for #GIEAnnualConference 2021.
56 prestigious speakers took the floor.

We debated, learn a lot & had fun in the charming #Lucerne🇨🇭 That was simply #amazing.
Thank you all for making this 18th edition memorable.

This is how we take action to mitigate #methaneemissions👇

Corporate & Policy experiences related to quantification, mitigation & reporting of methane emissions: Lessons for the future

22 February @ 14:30 - 18:30 CET

With the support of the European Commission and the Florence School of Regulation

We are delighted to invite you to a seminar on methane emissions from the gas value chain on the 22 nd of February from 14:30 to 18:30 (CET)/ From 7:30 to 11:30 (CT).

This session will enable you to learn more about the latest policies and regulations, the state of science and the corporate experiences to manage and reduce methane emissions outside Europe as well as the role the gas infrastructure sector can keep playing in the long-term.

Please find below the Agenda.

Practical information:

  • The connection details will be sent to you in due time.
  • When registered, please take note that this event will be held under Chatham House rule .

To reach a net-zero future by 2050, the improvement of knowledge and minimization on methane emissions are critical levers to deliver the EU Green Deal’s objectives. In October of 2020, the European Commission released their EU strategy to reduce methane emissions. Their legislative proposals will follow this year. The role of natural gas in supporting this strategy will be critical as these molecules should be able to play a lasting role to ensure a fair but fast and sustainable transition.

Over the years, the gas industry has been fostering CH4 emissions management and mitigation. They joined forces through mandatory and voluntary programmes to develop numerous tools, technologies and best practice guidelines. Today, the gas industry remains committed to the decarbonisation of the economy.

During this seminar, experts will discuss the benefits of using Methane Matters and Corporate Experiences to quantify, mitigate, and report CH4 emissions. This event will offer the opportunity to learn about the policies on methane emissions in other jurisdictions. It will provide important discussions that will shed light on the science across the LNG value chain and will showcase concrete examples of how the gas industry is pursuing decarbonisation efforts by taking stronger steps to reduce methane emissions along the entire gas value chain.
