Carbon Emissions and Climate

There are few issues more important right now than finding ways to understand and adequately reduce emissions. Doing so is a large scale project that requires the support of business, academia, government, Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) and the general public. We need to explore a variety of different political, social and scientific approaches in order to build a picture of the risks and design appropriate systems to address them.

In this edition of Insights, we look at some of the different issues in understanding and mitigating climate change, from new scientific ideas designed to improve our understanding, to the challenges businesses face in trying to reduce emissions. We explore the contribution measurement can make and look at where science sits in this complicated global issue.
