Measurement for our planet

This year, with COP26 due to take place in November, is pivotal in the race to mitigate the impacts of climate change

Today NPL is launching Measurement for Our Planet, shining a spotlight on our experts and the work undertaken to deliver solutions for climate science, emissions measurement and support for the innovation that will drive the decarbonisation of power, heat, manufacturing and transport.  News-story-graphic-400x300px-v1.png

In the run up to COP26, Measurement for Our Planet will provide insight from NPL experts into the metrology (the science of measurement) behind climate action and provide the opportunity for everyone to get involved with climate-based activities.  

NPL’s metrology expertise will play an important role in catalysing activity in line with the UK Government’s climate related strategies and in supporting international action. Effective solutions require collaboration across a whole systems approach. To address this, NPL is pleased to announce the formation of the net zero advisory group which brings together industry, government and academia to advise on NPL’s response to this challenge.  

Having confidence in the data derived from the many observations and model systems that are used to understand the way our climate is changing, is vital to decision making. NPL’s metrology expertise delivers the confidence that policy makers and industry leaders need to understand the impact of their decisions and to respond to challenges effectively.
