A tangible, ambitious effort to eliminate the oil and gas industry’s methane footprint by 2030.

The Aiming for Zero initiative establishes an all-in approach that treats methane emissions as seriously as the oil and gas industry already treats safety. We aim for zero and we strive to do what is needed to get there.

Join us in our call for the oil and gas industry to think differently and aim for zero methane emissions.

Our Approach

The signatories of the Aiming for Zero Methane Emissions Initiative believe that virtually all methane emissions from the industry can and should be avoided.
 
There are five key focus areas for action in this initiative:

Aim

Monitor & Measure

Advocate

We will strive to reach near zero methane emissions from our operated oil and gas assets by 2030, and we will encourage our partners to achieve similar results.

We will put in place all reasonable means to avoid methane venting and flaring, and to repair detected leaks, while preserving the safety of people and the integrity of operations.

Signatories will report annually and transparently on their methane emissions.

As technology evolves, we will supplement methane emissions estimates with more monitoring and measurement technologies, and introduce new solutions to avoid methane emissions. We welcome the continued improvement of measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) mechanisms.

We support the implementation of sound regulations to tackle methane emissions and encourage governments to include methane emissions reduction targets as part of their climate strategies.
