Emissions tracking coalition Climate TRACE unveiled the first comprehensive accounting of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions based primarily on direct, independent observation. The coalition’s comprehensive and independent approach fills critical knowledge gaps for all countries that rely on the patchwork system of self-reporting that serves as the basis for most existing emissions inventories.
Based on data from satellites, remote sensing, and advanced applications of artificial intelligence and machine learning, the inventory is relevant to the more than 100 countries that lack access to comprehensive emissions data from the past five years. It enables global
