The articles discusses the measures taken to achieve carbon neutrality in the main coal-producing countries. An overview of the carbon markets, energy efficiency, and greenhouse gas emission quotas is given. The approach to calculating fugitive methane emissions in coal mining and subsequent operations with coal is proposed based on the application of modern digital technologies. A client-server solution is justified for designing the software suite. A description is given of the operation sequence to process the initial information and the order of forming the reporting documentation for the inventory of coal mine methane emissions.
