The second day of the COP26 summit saw the announcement of a global partnership between the US and the EU to reduce methane emissions by 30% by 2030.
The announcement of this partnership was made by US President Joe Biden alongside the EU Commission Chief, Ursula von der Leyen and already has the support of over 100 countries who have signed the pledge.
Methane is one of the most harmful greenhouse gases and is suggested to be solely responsible for around a third of current global warming activities exacerbated by human activities and involvement.
It's been suggested that agriculture may account for up to 24% of the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, with recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports also highlighting the impact of livestock production as a major source of non-CO2 emissions.
For many, including von der Leyen, reducing methane emissions is a huge step towards achieving net zero by 2050 - something that the COP26 summit have outlined as a key goal that must be achieved to mitigate the effects of climate change.
Despite heralding support from over 100 countries, the pledge is yet to be signed by some of the world's largest emitters of methane.
