What is MiQ? 

MiQ is an independent, not-for-profit foundation facilitating a rapid reduction in methane emissions from the Oil & Gas sector. MiQ has developed a unique Standard for methane emissions accounting through the full natural gas supply chain. The standard differentiates each gas molecule by its methane intensity.  MiQ pairs this robust, technical standard with a credible registry to generate, trade and retire emissions certificates. MiQ’s theory of change is that differentiated products will lead to differentiated pricing and emissions reduction as corporates strive for higher norms.
