Global climate change is one of the most challenging issues facing policy makers and industry today. Mitigation of and adaptation to climate change will require coordination and collaboration between science, business and governments.
The Centre for Carbon Measurement at NPL will build on NPL's capability, working with partners to address the following three areas:
- International event targets better understanding of measuring industrial methane emissions.
- The Centre for Carbon Measurement has written a report that outlines the role that hydrogen could play in the UK's decarbonisation efforts and the measurement challenges facing its growth.
- NPL is supporting a new competition to find smart solutions to reduce the environmental footprint of our cities.
