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.
Minister of State for Universities and Science
Measuring consumption emissions is fiendishly difficult. The Centre for Carbon Measurement has an essential role to play in assessing the way in which carbon flows through the economy, and in helping government to understand where and how to intervene to reduce carbon emissions in the most effective manner.

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:
- An article on the need for new benchmarks to prevent green technology standards from inhibiting new products from reaching the market.
- NPL is supporting the Climate-KIC London Climathon, a 24-hour event to explore city-level solutions to climate change.
- Jane Burston gave a public lecture on the commercialisation of new renewables at Imperial College London's Energy Futures Lab.
