Joint Letter: Organisations call on UK leaders to ban venting and flaring of methane in the oil and gas sector by 2025

August 31, 2023

In the coming weeks, the UK Parliament will have a unique opportunity to protect both the climate and the energy security of British citizens, as well as the UK’s leadership on the global stage. This joint letter calls for the support from UK Parliament on amendment NC12 to the Energy Bill, tabled by Wera Hobhouse MP, which would ban the wasteful practice of venting and flaring of methane by 2025, and require stricter measures to prevent unintended methane emissions.
