About Climate TRACE
We make meaningful climate action faster and easier by mobilizing the global tech community to track greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions with unprecedented detail and speed and provide this data freely to the public.
How Climate TRACE Works
Most human economic activities release greenhouse gases into the Earth's atmosphere. We use satellites and other remote sensing technologies to spot these emissions activities
Data In Action
The States and Regions Remote Sensing Project (STARRS) illustrates the value of collaboration in generating independent greenhouse gas emissions data.

Located on the south shore of Lake Michigan and operational since 1908, Gary Works was once the largest steel plant in the world. According to Climate TRACE data, it was the steel industry’s largest source of GHG emissions in North America for 2021.
Cruise Ships Emissions During and Since the COVID-19 Pandemic
OceanMind and Climate TRACE take a look back at how the pandemic — and associated lockdowns — impacted emissions from the cruise ship industry, as well as how emissions have tracked since COVID-related travel restrictions have lifted.
