  • Greenhouse Gas Accounting Framework for Carbon Capture and Storage Projects

    Foreword Meeting the global challenge to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and avoid dangerous climate impacts requires deploying a portfolio of emission reduction technologies. We must both commit to broad and deep efficiencies in the way our societies’ consume energy and to significant increases in power supplies from low carbon energy sources. At the same time, it ...

  • Climate Change-Driven Market Opportunities for Combined-Cycle Gas Turbines

    Combined-cycle gas turbine cogeneration technology is currently enjoying wide popularity due to a variety of technological, environmental, and financial performance advantages relative to other technologies, specifically boilers. While the environmental performance advantages of this technology have focused on emissions of regulated air pollutants, such as sulfur oxides and nitrogen oxides, ...

  • Influence of trade on national CO2 emissions

    International trade has an impact on national CO2 emissions and consequently on the ability to fulfil national CO2 reduction targets. Through goods and services traded in a globally interdependent world, the consumption in each country is linked to greenhouse gas emissions in other countries. It has been argued that in order to achieve equitable reduction targets, ...

  • Launch of the First Greenhouse Gas Accounting Tool for Chinese Cities

    A new Greenhouse Gas Protocol tool to help Chinese cities measure and manage their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions was launched today in Beijing. The tool, called the Greenhouse Gas Accounting Tool for Chinese Cities (Pilot Version 1.0), was developed by the World Resources ...

  • Why did GHG emissions decrease in the EU between 1990 and 2012?

    Total GHG emissions (excluding LULUCF) in the EU decreased substantially since 1990, reaching their lowest level in 2012. The EU emitted 4,544 million tonnes of CO2 eq. in 2012, accounting for less than 10% of global GHG emissions1. Figure 1 shows total greenhouse gas emissions in the period 1990– 2012, both in the EU-15 (which is collectively a party to the Kyoto Protocol) and in 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 ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Tailoring Rule - The Regulatory Permitting Climate Forecast is Getting Hot

    The EPA is moving forward in regulating Greenhouse Gas emissions and has published the reporting rule and its final rule to control greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from stationary sources. If you are a major source under the prevention of significant deterioration program or a major source under Title V you will be subject to this rule. ...

  • WRI 2010 Organizational Greenhouse Gas Inventory

    WRI’s 2010 inventory revealed emissions of 4,309 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (mt CO2e). This is 2.3 times the 2009 inventory of 1,326 mt CO2e. This increase is mainly attributed to the inclusion of scope 3 accounting, based on WRI’s recently published ...

  • Bottom line on regional cap-and-trade programs

    Three regional greenhouse gas cap-and-trade programs are either in the planning stages or operational in North America. This brief discusses each of the programs. What is happening on the regional level and why is this significant? Twenty-three U.S. states and four Canadian provinces are actively participating in the design and implementation of three regional cap-and-trade programs to ...

  • Environmental Kuznets Curves for Greenhouse Gas emissions. Evidence from Italy using National Accounts Matrix including Environmental Accounts and provincial panel data

    This article provides a new empirical evidence on delinking and Environmental Kuznets Curves (EKC) for Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions in Italy. Two panel datasets ? sector disaggregated National Accounts Matrix including Environmental Accounts emissions (1990?2001) and geographically disaggregated emissions at provincial level (1990?2000) ? are analysed. We find mixed evidence supporting the EKC ...

  • Looking Back on 15 Years of Greenhouse Gas Accounting

    Most people are familiar with the old adage “You can’t manage what you don’t measure.” Over the past 15 years, we at WRI have certainly seen the truth in that statement. The Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol celebrates its 15th anniversary this year. A joint initiative of WRI and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, the GHG ...

  • Defining the Shale Gas Life Cycle: A framework for identifying and mitigating environmental impacts

    Life cycle assessments of shale gas activities differ in their findings. Among the various studies, researchers estimate different greenhouse gas emissions, rates of water use, and rates of wastewater production. Some of the variation in findings is due to the parameters of each study, particularly the life cycle boundary. The life cycle boundary determines which life cycle stages—and which ...

  • New greenhouse gas accounting tool will help China’s cities pursue low-carbon development

    Low-carbon development has become the core theme of China’s urbanization. In fact, it’s one of the country’s key strategies to achieve its target of reducing carbon intensity by 40-45 percent by 2020. China’s National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) ...

  • GHG accounts in Italy: alternative frameworks on the basis of producer or consumer responsibility

    In a previous work we have analysed the relationship between trade flows and Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) emissions for Italy and the results revealed large embodiments of GHGs in imports. These results indicate that a different accounting scheme and responsibility principle should be considered. Therefore, this paper looks at what would be the amount of GHG for which Italy would be responsible under ...
