The UK is fully supportive of rapid national and global action to reduce short-lived climate pollutants, including methane, as part of its commitment to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees. The Government put methane towards the top of the agenda at COP26, where the Global Methane Pledge was launched and the UK was one of the first countries to sign up. The Government welcomes the focus of COP28 on delivering action to reduce global methane emissions and will ensure the UK is represented at these discussions wherever possible, demonstrating its leadership and strong domestic track record.
