  • Economics of a global strategy for reduction of carbon emissions

    The evolution of natural systems that feed and sustain human populations, and indeed the evolution of modern society, has occurred in the context of a moderate and stable climate. Therefore, recent trends in climate change, most likely caused by increasing concentrations of carbon dioxide and other radiative trace gases in the atmosphere, and the expected consequent global warming, are now a ...

  • Energy strategy for carbon dioxide emission reduction in Taiwan

    A linear programming model is proposed to find the energy strategy for reducing carbon dioxide emission in Taiwan. Scenarios that include energy switching and energy conservation under different emission levels are considered, and the corresponding economic impacts are evaluated. Emissions from thirty-nine sectors are reduced by two major mechanisms. Energy switching is assumed to be induced by ...

  • Government ignores carbon emission reductions during recession

    DECC remains confident that existing plans to cut carbon emissions by 2020 will serve to achieve carbon targets, reports Envido. In its response to the first annual report from the independent Committee on Climate Change (CCC), the government accepted the committee's recommendation to effectively ignore carbon emission reductions that have been achieved as a result of the economic downturn. The ...

  • Emissions Reduction with Diesel Blending

    Diesel technologies are develops by huge rates. Modification of cars with diesel engines make a half of the new cars sold in Europe. The black smoke, noisy engine operation and unpleasant smell remained far in the past. Today diesel engines present not only profitability, but also high capacity and worthy dynamic characteristics. Quality of fuel also is changed. The modern diesel blending has ...

  • Peatlands: hotspots for emissions reductions

    Peatlands play a critical role in climate regulation, storing twice as much carbon as the entire world’s forest biomass and emitting large amounts of carbon when drained. Peat carbon stocks are distributed worldwide. The mitigation potential is very significant, but possible future possible emissions as well if no rapid action is taken to protect and restore them. The UNFCCC provides ...

  • What is the carbon reduction commitment?

    The UK Carbon Reduction Commitment is a British based initiative, which is anticipated to provide a model for the rest of the world. The US Environmental Protection Agency announced shortly after introduction by the UK Department that they plan to introduce a similar scheme. The UK Carbon Reduction Commitment may sound fairly innocuous yet it represents legislation with some fairly significant ...

  • Determinants of corporate carbon reduction targets

    This paper examines attributes affecting a corporation’s choice of an intensity-only (carbon emissions relative to sales, production, etc.) versus an absolute carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) emissions goal. We investigate alternative hypotheses for this choice including: 1) a high growth hypothesis whereby high growth companies select an intensity goal, to continue to grow without an absolute emission ...

  • Harmonizing Emissions: A case for clean air, carbon reduction and economic growth

    At the Air and Waste Management Associations (A&WMA) meeting on April 2-3, 2008, in Washington DC, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) expressed the need for harmonization between whatever carbon reduction policy is adopted by the United States with existing pollution emission regulations under the Clean Air Act (CAA). The goal of this harmonization is to allow industry to reduce greenhouse ...


  • Why The Carbon Reduction Label For Wine?

     If you’ve continued to read past that title you are more than likely already familiar with terms such as: “climate change”, “carbon economy”, “global warming”, “carbon accounting”, “carbon neutrality”. I’m going to assume you have a passable understanding of the subject, issues and principles because ...

  • UK Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC)

    Energy Efficiency Reduction Bill a Benchmark for Others?The pressure has been growing on individual companies, producers and emitters of greenhouse gases to try and restrict the output. Up until this time, it has been voluntary to report carbon emissions but legal initiatives are now underway to make this mandatory. A carbon reduction bill has already been put in place in the UK and may soon come ...

  • Blockchain Technology Can Boost Climate Action

    Experts meeting at the recent UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn in May have said that a new technology called “Blockchain” could play a major role in tackling climate change. A Blockchain is a distributed database that is continuously updated and verified by its users. Each added block of data is “chained” and becomes part of a growing list of records, under the ...

  • Reduce Your Carbon Emissions

    Saving Energy is easier than you think!The average American generates about 19-20 tons of carbon dioxide each year. Simple activities such as watching television, sending an email message, cooking and making a phone call produce carbon emissions, but there are many simple and inexpensive ways to reduce your carbon emissions ( and your energy costs) beginning today.According to Evan Mills, a ...

  • Designing “Measurable” Post-2020 emissions reduction commitments

    As climate negotiations kick off this week in Warsaw, Poland (COP 19), the stakes are high. The recently published UNEP Emissions Gap Report finds that countries are falling woefully short of the action required to avoid ...

  • Why carbon reduction and energy efficiency must be combined

    With all the eyes focused on carbon emissions prior to Cancun, it’s vital not to lose sight of the need to combine carbon reduction with energy efficiency. Reducing carbon emissions is generally associated with an increase in energy efficiency. But, it is possible to reduce such carbon emissions while still operating inefficient systems. A biomass boiler, for example, reduces carbon ...

  • NHS managers urged to meet carbon reduction targets

    New plan on sustainable health sets out the steps that NHS managers must follow to cut carbon emissions. NHS Managers in the UK will be handed a number of measures they need to take to meet the government's carbon reduction targets, which involves cuttings its carbon emissions by 10% by 2015. This is part of the new “Vision for Sustainable Health: A Route map” to be set out today. ...

  • Corporate carbon knowledge is the first step in reduction

    Yesterday, I wrote about the attitude shift that needs to happen at the corporate level for green tech to have a fighting chance. Since most CXO types are really, ultimately, focused on the bottom line, the only real way to get their attention is by showing them the numbers. And that’s where a new class of enterprise dashboard software intended to let companies document and manage their ...
