  • Automated Carbon Emissions Reporting [WEBINAR]

    You may or may not be worried about carbon emissions reporting right now, depending on how strong greenhouse gas emissions regulations are in your country. But one thing is for sure: laws are evolving and becoming more restrictive. And sooner or later energy managers will need to understand how to report carbon emissions properly. Good news – this is exactly what you’ll learn in our ...

  • Research calls for carbon pricing to incentivise higher GHG productivity throughout global value chains

    For carbon pricing to cost-effectively support decarbonisation, it is essential to incentivise higher GHG productivity throughout global value chains. This is one of the findings presented by Ecofys and The Generation Foundation at the UN climate summit today. The study is the first released under the Carbon Pricing ...

  • Carbon dioxide could ease drought impacts

    Climate science may have over-estimated the menace of drought in the world of global warming. Because green plants will respond to extra carbon dioxide, the water taken up by the roots could be halved. In effect, the greenhouse gas emissions that threaten the world’s climates could at the same time limit one ...

  • Paris pledges fall short on emissions

    National promises made late last year to contain carbon dioxide emissions will not be nearly enough to meet the global warming target agreed last December by 195 nations, according to a new assessment. The signatories to the historic agreement at the UN conference on climate change in Paris pledged to limit global warming to ...

  • Emissions cuts boost health and wealth

    Going green by switching to renewable sources of electricity could be good business for the US, according to new research. A report by researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California says that cutting greenhouse gas emissions meant that the US as a whole was $2.2 billion better off in 2013. And as a result of reductions in other forms of air ...

  • Green innovations could cut carbon emissions from road projects by a third

    Carbon emissions from Dutch road networks could be reduced by almost a third if more innovative materials and processes were used, a new study suggests. Researchers assessed the potential benefits associated with 10 innovations in road construction and maintenance, and compared them to conventional materials and processes. In order to meet its emissions goals, the EU transport sector must reduce ...

  • Traffic pollution associated with risk of developing type 2 diabetes

    Long-term exposure to traffic-related air particle pollution is linked with type 2 diabetes, a new study in Germany has found. Furthermore, the study found that people living close to busy roads were at greater risk of developing the disease than those living further away. Air pollution has been linked to a number of health problems, including heart, circulatory and lung diseases. It has also ...

  • China’s carbon count is not as high as feared

    Calculations on how much carbon dioxide China produces have been wrong for more than 10 years because the official bodies that calculate it have assumed the country’s power stations burn high-quality coal. In fact, the world’s biggest polluter uses coal with a lower carbon content than power stations in Europe and the US, and so produces less carbon dioxide per tonne − around ...

  • Carbon number crunching

    A booming economy and population led China to emerge in 2006 as the global leader in fossil-fuel carbon emissions, a distinction it still maintains. But exactly how much carbon China releases has been a topic of debate, with recent estimates varying by as much as 15 percent. “There’s great scrutiny of Chinese emissions now that they are the world’s largest fossil-fuel ...

  • EMIT 3.4 released

    A new version of EMIT is now available. EMIT is a simple, fast and comprehensive tool for compiling, editing and analysing emissions inventories. EMIT is invaluable in many situations, for example when carrying out emission calculations across large urban areas when dispersion modelling with ADMS-Urban, and when predicting the ...

  • Study: Cutting Carbon Dioxide saves 3,500 US Lives s Year

    The Obama Administration's hotly debated plan to reduce heat-trapping carbon dioxide from the nation's power plants will save about 3,500 lives a year by cutting back on other types of pollution as well, a new independent study concludes. A study from Harvard and Syracuse University calculates the decline in heart attacks and lung disease when soot and smog are reduced - an anticipated byproduct ...

  • Carbon equals cash: the value of low carbon polymers

    Axion Polymers has achieved its Climate Change Agreement (CCA) target; firmly underlining its commitment to energy-efficient production of sustainable low carbon polymer products derived from end-of-life vehicles and waste electrical and electronic equipment. Two years ago, the Manchester-based plastics recycler was one of the first companies in its sector to sign up to the Government’s ...

  • Cut carbon now to avoid climate tipping points

    An international team of scientists has tried a new approach to addressing the complex argument about the costs of climate change – and, once again, the prediction is that the costs of inaction will be so much greater than paying the bills now. The researchers − from the UK, Switzerland and the US − ...

  • Launch of the 2050 Global Calculator

    It’s great to see so many of you here today. I hope I’m not being presumptuous by saying that your presence here means that we all share a common understanding – and a common objective. Everyone here understands we need to follow the science – man-made climate change is real, is already happening, and represents one of the most serious threats facing the UK, and the planet ...

  • World can cut carbon emissions and live well

    Cutting carbon emissions to limit global temperatures to a 2°C rise can be achieved while improving living standards, a new online tool shows. The world can eat well, travel more, live in more comfortable homes, and meet international carbon reduction commitments according to the Global Calculator tool, ...

  • Higher social costs bolster case for emissions curbs

    Concerted action on climate change is looking like a bargain after research findings that the notional cost to society of global warming damage caused by carbon dioxide emissions has been seriously underestimated. The US Environmental Protection Agency calculates the “social cost of carbon” at $37 per tonne – a figure used to guide current energy regulations and possible future ...

  • Wider gaps between cycle paths and traffic reduce active commuters’ air pollution dose

    Setting cycle and footpaths further back from the road can significantly lower the amount of air pollution that cyclists and pedestrians inhale, suggests new research. While wide gaps are not always practical, the study shows that even small increases in distance could substantially reduce the dose of pollution. ‘Active commuting’ is being promoted in cities across the world. Rather ...
