There is a 90 percent chance that one of the next five years (2021-2025) will be the warmest on record, according to the latest World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Global Annual to Decadal Climate Update.
“It is yet another wakeup call that the world needs to fast-track commitments to slash greenhouse gas emissions and achieve carbon neutrality,” said Petteri Taalas, WMO Secretary General.
At Urbint, we’re doing our part to combat climate change with our damage prevention and asset integrity solutions, which help our customers meet their emissions goals. In 2020, we saw our highest reduction yet: 60,741 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e). That’s like taking 13,210 cars off the road or planting 1,004,365 trees, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
Damages to natural gas facilities cause long term harm to the global community because methane, the primary component of natural gas, has 28 to 36 times the global warming potential of carbon dioxide (CO2) over 100 years, according to the EPA. Urbint Lens for Damage Prevention uses artificial intelligence and real world data to pinpoint the riskiest excavations, so facility owners and operators can intervene to stop damages—and the methane leaks that result—before they happen.
We’re at a crucial moment to prevent climate change from getting out of control. I’m proud of the positive effect our damage prevention solution has had thus far, and I urge all gas facility owners and operators to consider Urbint Lens for Damage Prevention to assist in their emission reduction efforts.
