VENTUS OGI featured on national TV
Sierra-Olympic is proud to support global efforts to reduce methane emissions. Among the many tools available for this monumental task, optical gas imaging thermal cameras are one of the most efficient and effective at detecting leaks, identifying point sources, and providing clear, actionable information that crews need to make repairs.
Sierra-Olympic was recently the subject of a video docu-series produced by the Viewpoint Project, hosted by none other than Dennis Quaid. We’re not allowed to post the segment that is airing on Public TV throughout the year, but do have rights to share the version below.
About the Global Methane Pledge
Methane is a powerful but short-lived climate pollutant that accounts for about half of the net rise in global average temperature since the pre-industrial era.
Rapidly reducing methane emissions from energy, agriculture, and waste can achieve near-term gains in our efforts in this decade for decisive action and is regarded as the single most effective strategy to keep the goal of limiting warming to 1.5˚C within reach, while yielding co-benefits including improving public health and agricultural productivity.
Participants joining the Pledge agree to take voluntary actions to contribute to a collective effort to reduce global methane emissions by at least 30 percent from 2020 levels by 2030, which could eliminate over 0.2˚C warming by 2050. This is a global, not a national reduction target. Participants also commit to moving towards using the highest tier Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) good practice inventory methodologies, as well as working to continuously improve the accuracy, transparency, consistency, comparability, and completeness of national greenhouse gas inventory reporting under the UNFCCC and Paris Agreement, and to provide greater transparency in key sectors.
The Pledge aims to catalyze global action and strengthen support for existing international methane emission reduction initiatives to advance technical and policy work that will serve to underpin Participants’ domestic actions. The Pledge also recognizes the essential roles that the private sector, development banks, financial institutions and philanthropy play to support implementation of the Pledge and welcomes their efforts and engagement.
