Part 1 – Inside Greenhouse Gas emissions: Methane’s unexplored impacts and what this means for fashion and textiles

Greenhouse gases (GHGs) consist of carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and fluorinated gases. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the most prevalent GHG (79%), followed by methane (11%) and nitrous oxide (7%). It is believed that methane emissions from human activity cause about one-third of the global warming we have today.

You’ll have spotted the discrepancy between the methane figures I have just given: 11% of emissions are methane, which is responsible for 30% of global warming.

The reason? Methane is more potent, trapping 30 times as much heat as carbon dioxide (compared to over 100 years). Despite this, methane doesn’t seem to factor into fashion and textile industry emissions targets and is absent from the emissions reduction narrative. So why, and what might be the consequences of this ‘methane blindness’?
