The World Bank is via the engagement in the Zero Routine Flaring by 2030 Initiative under the Global Gas Flaring Reduction partnership also engaged in controlling black carbon emissions. Partnership is a public-private initiative comprising international and national oil companies, national and regional governments, and international institutions. It works to increase use of natural gas associated with oil production by helping remove technical and regulatory barriers to flaring reduction, conducting research, disseminating best practices, and developing country-specific gas flaring reduction programs. The EU funded Action on Black Carbon is collaborating with the World Banks’ GGFR to reduce black carbon emissions in the Arctic from gas flaring from oil and gas operations. All the oil and gas producing countries in the Arctic (Canada, Norway, Russia and United States) are members of the GGFR Partnership.
