Greenhouse gases in the gas industry are gases formed as a result of the industry production activity that contribute to the greenhouse effect in the gas industry. Carbon dioxide and methane are of the highest significance.

In comparison with other energy sources natural gas produces less CO2 per unit of produced energy due to rather low hydrocarbon content.

Gazprom constantly organizes environmentally efficient events for greenhouse emissions reduction (including CO2 and CH4). The programs for limitation and reduction of CH4 emissions at subordinate enterprises and facilities are elaborated. All these projects have a common goal: greenhouse emissions reduction, improvement of the fuel gas effectiveness and optimization of its consumption rate. They can be successfully implemented under the International System of Payments for Greenhouse Gases Emissions.
