Proposed Gas STAR Gold Program

EPA is proposing a new voluntary program for leaders in the natural gas industry to track and earn recognition for their methane reductions facility-wide. The key goals of the proposed program are:

  1. Showcase facilities that are already achieving reductions in methane emissions.
  2. Encourage facilities to identify and implement opportunities to achieve further reductions in methane emissions.
  3. Create a framework for credible, transparent and consistent reporting on facilities that can be easily understood and compared.
  4. Recognize progress that companies are achieving in emissions reductions relative to their overall operations.
