19 Dec Saggas’ methane emissions reduction plan obtains the highest rating for the second year in a row
The United Nations, through its program for the environment, UNEP, has granted for the second year in a row the highest rating, the “Gold Standard” distinction, to the Saggas methane emission reduction plan within the OGMP 2.0 project.
This recognition, which is part of the second report launched by the International Methane Emissions Observatory, IMEO, certifies the plan proposed by Saggas to reduce its methane emissions by 45% in 2025 compared to those of 2015 is solid. In addition, the observatory has also raised the quality of the data provided by the plant, which reports its emissions in all types of sources involving its activity.
Besides, Saggas has proactively participated in the working groups promoted by the United Nations for the preparation of technical documentation to develop a methane emission detection and quantification methodology.
In 2020, Saggas was one of the first 62 companies around the world to voluntarily join the Oil and Gas Methane Partnership 2.0 (OGMP 2.0) program, an initiative promoted by the United Nations Environment Program, UNEP, which forms part of the European Commission’s Strategy for the reduction of methane emissions. Through improved data reporting, OGMP 2.0 aims to reduce methane emissions 45% by 2025, and 60-75% by 2030.
