The Centre for Carbon Measurement at NPL brings together academic and business partners with government and is designed to ensure that we can have confidence in the measurements we need to improve our understanding of the global climate, deliver policies for mitigating climate change, and accelerate the development of low carbon technologies.

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:
- Jane Burston gave a public lecture on the commercialisation of new renewables at Imperial College London's Energy Futures Lab.
- NPL hosts a two-day conference to discuss the role of metrology in supporting climate research.
- An article on the importance of measurement in determining what needs to be done to tackle climate change and in monitoring our progress.
