The Greenhouse Gas Management Institute’s Research Program conducts forward-looking independent research. Pairing the unique expert experience of its staff and faculty with the dynamism of its extensive practitioner network, the Institute’s Research Program provides insight into foundational areas of climate policy and the practice of environmental management.

This program provides policymakers, industry leaders, and academics with forward-looking inquiry and analysis of GHG MRV and management challenges and solutions.

The Institute is unique in the field of GHG measurement and management, arguably ahead of its time in terms of the problems it is addressing. However, it was founded to address this paucity of thought leadership and our Research Program is characterized by the commitment to investigating, confronting, and pushing these issues from the dark corners of academia and technocracy to the mainstream.

The Carbon Management Journal

Carbon Management journal is a scholarly peer-reviewed forum for insights from the diverse array of disciplines that enhance our understanding of carbon dioxide and other GHG interactions – from biology, ecology, chemistry, and engineering to law, policy, economics, and sociology. The journal has a core aim to examine the options and mechanisms for mitigating the causes and impacts of climate change, which includes mechanisms for reducing emissions and enhancing the removal of GHGs from the atmosphere, as well as metrics used to measure the performance of options and mechanisms resulting from international treaties, domestic policies, local regulations, environmental markets, technologies, industrial efforts, and consumer choices.

This unique resource is designed to keep you up-to-date on research in the field. The journal is published quarterly by Taylor & Francis in partnership with the Greenhouse Gas Management Institute.
