Faster, more-effective decarbonization starts with detailed knowledge of emissions sources.




303.96 BILLION TONNES CO2e
January 2015 - December 2020

Climate TRACE represents a detailed taxonomy of human-caused emissions from all major sources—from power plants and oil refineries to rice cultivation, cement production, and shipping. This emissions inventory is tied to direct observations of emissions sources, and creates opportunity for meaningful action to decarbonize specific activities.
