Following the EU Methane strategy’s adoption on 14 October 2020, the EU Commission will unveil the legislative proposal on measurement and mitigation of methane emissions.

Until 1 May 2021, all the stakeholders are invited to participate in public consultations by filling in a comprehensive questionnaire. The questionnaire aims to gather views on the range of issues, including the type and scope of regulation, leak detection, and repair programmes, venting and flaring, and on the actions to mitigate the emissions from biogas/biomethane production and the coal sector.

The companies and NGOs, both individually and in the industry groups, such as the Methane Guiding Principles, have been working to respond to the questions raised by the EU Commission in the questionnaire.

This event is an occasion to discuss the key challenges and considerations which arise from these discussions, as well as the way forward.  On which issues is there a consensus? Where are divergencies and controversies?
