Welcome to the Global Gas Centre

About us

The Global Gas Centre (GGC) is a non-profit organization, based in Geneva, dedicated to executives and experts of natural gas companies who want to share views and best practices on a neutral, independent and inclusive organization. The GGC is a unique platform with the objective of promoting sustainable energy with a particular focus on issues related to the natural gas sector.

GGC

What is the GGC?

Our programme is focused on the evolving strategic priorities and interests of the global gas industry; this is a dynamic global platform where all gas and energy transition topics are discussed. Our programmes are designed and planned according to a mutual decision within our members, and reflect their evolving interests:

  • International perspectives on the role of gas in the global energy transition.
  • A wide scope of activities with membership not restricted to gas companies alone through an active involvement/interest in the global gas and/or associated industries.
  • An annual programme of meetings and projects reflecting a balanced mix of global and regional themes and topics. The GGC has signed cooperation agreements with select global institutions of repute, which include inter-governmental institutions like UNCTAD (United Nation Conference on Trade and Development) and global energy associations like the WEC (World Energy Council).
  • The GGC also has regional partnerships with energy-focused international think-tanks and research institutions, and remains open to any collaboration that is consistent with its objective of open, fact-based and reasoned advocacy of the role of natural gas.

The GGC is based in Geneva, which benefits from:

  • The neutral status of Switzerland.
  • Proximity with the international organizations and associations. In this regard, the GGC signed in 2016 an Memorandum of Understanding with UNCTAD (United Nations Conference on Trade and Development).
  • International environment of Geneva, which is easily accessible and well connected to many cities with a central airport.
  • Status of this city as one of the most important hub for the trading of commodities, which means that many energy companies have offices in Geneva.

Our Network

Global Gas Centre

We believe that natural gas has an important role to play in the future energy mix and the global energy transition to a lower carbon economy. This work cannot be done in isolation, and our approach is to continually expand and develop our network of partners in order to enable the gas industry to play its part in the wider global energy sector.

In the Global Gas Centre, we aim at fostering exchange with stakeholders from all across the energy industry. A special focus is also put on innovation with dedicated workshops/seminars on current research projects to pave the way for the decarbonisation of gas, and to ensure that all gases (biomethane, biogas ang hydrogen) can contribute to mitigate climate change.

Our cooperation agreement with the World Energy Council (WEC) enables us to cooperate with the international energy industry at important global flagship events, as well as at regional/country chapter levels.

Similarly, the role of gas trade and its importance to international trade in global commodities is reflected in our memorandum of understanding with UNCTAD; the GGC closely collaborates with UNCTAD in the Global Commodities Forum which is held every two years.

In addition, we cooperate closely with Bingmann Pflüger International (BPI), one of Germany’s leading strategy consultancies specializing in energy, commodities and infrastructure. Since 2018, the GGC and BPI jointly organize the annual Berlin Gas Session and an Energy Dialogue at the Reichstag, which traditionally takes place in March, to discuss the most pressing strategic energy issues between industry players, leading political decision-makers and key influencers.

Moreover, we are committed to collaborate with academia and the energy policy community as a whole, and have begun a number of partnerships with academic institutions and international think-tanks.
