  • Refrigerant compliance includes calculating carbon emissions

    If you manage a facility using a refrigeration and air-conditioning (RAC) system or heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC-R) system, it’s time to comply with federal and state environmental laws regarding carbon emissions. To help reduce greenhouse gases, the law requires calculating carbon emissions. This means monitoring, collecting data and performing extensive reporting of CO2 ...

  • U.S. headed for massive decline in carbon emissions*

    For years now, many members of Congress have insisted that cutting carbon emissions was difficult, if not impossible. It is not. During the two years since 2007, carbon emissions have dropped 9 percent. While part of this drop is from the recession, part of it is also from efficiency gains and from replacing coal with natural gas, wind, solar, and geothermal energy. The United States has ended a ...

  • Managing carbon emissions: understanding the UK landscape

    Ensuring the development of low-carbon generation and the regulation of greenhouse gas production is one of the many priorities for UK government. As such, several policies have been introduced to help manage greenhouse gas levels, including the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) and the Smart Grid Forum. The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) ...

  • World’s top companies failing to cut carbon emissions

    New report claims that only 19% of the world’s top companies have achieved significant reductions in their carbon emissions. New research reveals that over 80% of the world's top companies aren't achieving significant carbon emissions reductions, although there is an increase in the amount of companies that identify significant opportunities instead of risks from climate change. According ...

  • China's regional carbon emission intensity decomposition system

    Based on the Divisia decomposition method, this study developed the China Regional Carbon Emission Intensity Decomposition System (CREID). CREID intends to provide a uniform platform to analyse the trends of China's regional carbon emission intensity and their underlying reasons. The uneven regional development and large amount of data to process in China are considered in CREID. Corresponding ...

  • Reinforcing China’s leadership in reducing global carbon emissions

    Believed by many as the next superpower¹, China also has the opportunity to be viewed as an international leader in energy efficiency solutions and environmental best practices. With its flourishing economy, China can decide whether to accelerate or decelerate implementation of initiatives designed to combat climate change. Whatever steps China decides to take ...

  • Count that carbon

    Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is a significant effort that requires a great deal of planning and implementation, but tracking and reporting this reduction is a whole other process that many California companies are now being required to do. Two thousand and nine marks the first year of required emissions reporting under California’s groundbreaking Assembly Bill 32 (AB 32), part of the ...

  • Quantifying water–energy links and related carbon emissions in cities

    To date, key water–energy connections have not been systematically quantified. Nor has their potential for contributing to greenhouse gas mitigation been evaluated. Lack of knowledge of these links, particularly within cities, is viewed as a major limitation to energy-sensitive urban water management and integrated urban design. This paper fills part of this void. The key contribution is a new ...

  • Rule of law and the environmental Kuznets curve: evidence for carbon emissions

    In response to the growing body of literature on the relationship between the environment and institutions, this study investigates how the rule of law influences the turning point of the environmental Kuznets curve (EKC). Using Bradford et al.'s (2005) and Leitão's (2010) alternative specification of the EKC that avoids non–linear transformation of potentially non–stationary regressors, we find ...

  • Black carbon emissions of individual cars measured under real conditions

    Measurements of individual vehicle emissions are usually made in laboratory tests. In this study, researchers followed cars driving in real conditions to measure emissions of air pollutants, including black carbon and nitrogen oxides. The study shows that diesel cars contribute disproportionately to air pollution, and highlights the value of on-road measurements. Vehicle traffic is a major source ...

  • 8 steps to managing your organisation`s Scope 3 carbon emissions

    Scope 3 emissions, or 'value chain emissions', represent all the indirect impacts upstream and downstream of an organisation, not already captured by the GHG Protocol's Scope 1 and 2 reporting. These often represent the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions and in some cases can account for up to 90% of the ...

  • A Seven-Country assessment of national capacities to track forest carbon dioxide emissions and removal

    Forest carbon monitoring is critical to evaluating whether policies aiming to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from forest change are achieving their goals. The objective of this brief is to highlight the technical capacity needs for implementing national systems for forest carbon monitoring. This paper assesses the technical capacity in seven countries—Brazil, Colombia, Ethiopia, India, ...

  • An assessment of operations of oil-exporting countries in terms of energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions

    Energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions from 16 oil-exporting countries are studied using Data Envelopment Analysis using indicators representing economic growth, energy consumption and emissions. The analysis for 1996 shows that Norway, Gabon and Nigeria are efficient and that Russia is inefficient. Malmquist Productivity Index analysis shows that there is progress in achieving higher ...

  • Egalite, fraternite, sustainabilite: evaluating the significance of regional affluence and population growth on carbon emissions

    Estimates of the relative contribution of population size and economic growth to global carbon emissions out to 2100 have been made for the industrialised 'North' and populous 'South' of the planet. This was achieved by decomposition of the terms in the 'sustainability' (or IPAT) equation. Historic data, alongside future IPCC emission scenarios, were used to analyse likely changes in CO2 ...
