Investor Methane Engagement Guide - Paris Launch Event


This roundtable discussion will provide an overview of the material risks that methane poses for investors and the oil and gas industry, and will introduce the new Methane Engagement Guide, a joint publication between the PRI and Environmental Defense Fund, as a practical tool to help manage those risks through engagement. The agenda will feature discussions from an investor on their own perspective of investigating methane emissions, and speak to how the guide can help improve methane management and disclosure practices in the industry.
