  • How to define additionality in relation to greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions

    Companies that have facilities which use refrigeration and air-conditioning systems or heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems have to measure changes which are imposed upon them due to greenhouse gas emissions. Additionality is a measure which compares the level of emissions prior to implementation with the levels after a greenhouse gas reduction project has been introduced. ...

  • The AIJ pilot phase as laboratory for CDM and JI

    The Activities Implemented Jointly (AIJ) program has developed about 150 greenhouse gas reduction and sequestration projects in many economic sectors in over 40 countries during the last six years. Most of these projects are rather small and many of them have only been partially implemented due to lack of finance. The lack of emissions credits is the main reason. Only half a dozen investor ...

  • The European environment — state and outlook 2015 — synthesis report

    In 2015, Europe stands roughly halfway between the initiation of EU environmental policy in the early 1970s and the EU's 2050 vision of 'living well within the limits of the planet' (1). Underlying this vision is a recognition that Europe's economic prosperity and well-being is intrinsically linked to its natural environment — from fertile soils to clean air and water. Looking back on the ...

  • Executive Order 13514 on federal sustainability

    How does this climate change order differ from Bush era orders?It is said that the federal government is the largest consumer of energy in the United States. As such we can deduce that it is one of the biggest contributors to the problem of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and a significant contributor to the problem of global climate change. The executive order on climate change was issued shortly ...

  • Kenya’s first carbon credits from geothermal energy pay for schools

    Last month, I drove through dust on bumpy dirt roads from Nairobi to visit the Oloirowua Primary School in Suswa, 140 kilometers northeast of the Kenya capital. The school sits on the vast savannah near Hell’s Gate National Park, an area with substantial geothermal potential. Here, KenGen, Kenya’s electric generating company, has built the ...

  • Waste materials are an underused resource the construction of Europe`s roads

    Recycled waste material could play a major role in the construction of roads in Europe, bringing both environmental and economic benefits. A new study proposes a scenario where 50% of the asphalt for Europe's roads consists of recycled materials, leading to significant reductions in costs, energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. According to the European Waste Framework Directive, there is a ...
