The Global Methane Initiative (formerly the Methane to Markets Partnership) plays an important role in promoting methane capture and use projects internationally and reducing emissions of methane globally. The 2011 U.S. Government's Global Methane Initiative Accomplishments report summarizes the contributions of participating U.S. government agencies and highlights their 2010 projects and activities.

This report was developed collaboratively by EPA, the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Agency for International Development, the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the U.S. Trade and Development Agency.
