GTI Energy's Methane Emissions Measurement and Verification Initiative

Accelerating Methane Emissions Reductions

Veritas, GTI Energy's Methane Emissions Measurement and Verification Initiative, is meeting the urgent need for credible, comparable methane emissions measurement and accelerating actions that reduce methane emissions reductions.

The standardized, science-based, technology-neutral, and measurement-informed protocols were built to assemble methane emissions inventories that are verified by direct field measurements.

The collaborative effort brought together dozens of industry, research, and environmental stakeholders to engage in an open and transparent development process complete with diverse viewpoints and perspectives to enable credibility. More than 35 companies partnered with Veritas to shape the protocols’ development.

The technical protocols calculate methane emissions for natural gas systems by six segments and offer a consistent approach to demonstrate emissions reductions in a consistent, credible, and transparent way, are now available online for everyone to use on the Veritas website at
