What is The Race to Zero?
The Race to Zero is a friendly annual competition among the world’s oil and natural gas producers designed to challenge and encourage energy companies to reduce their total methane emissions.
In order for us to address issues related to climate change and to take appropriate steps towards reducing our methane footprint, it is necessary to get a clear picture of our true emissions.
To participate in the The Race to Zero, each company must quantify their total site-wide methane emissions from a statistically-representative sample of their total sites selected at random by the organizing committee. The concept is simple: the energy company with the lowest average emissions ratio, the closest to zero, takes home the top prize.
While only one company will be crowned the champion each year, when we work together to reduce our methane emissions and lessen our impact on the environment, we all win.
