Greenhouse Gas Measurement, Reporting and Verification (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Addressing the long-term problem of global climate change largely rests on society's ability to mitigate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Without reliable metrics on the causes of climate change (i.e., primarily GHG emissions) we cannot mitigate it. The world needs a new workforce that is dedicated creating metrics and providing quality assurance on GHG emissions (and removals) upon which policies and other initiatives can be based, and then managing those emissions (and removals).

As the old saying goes 'you cannot manage what you do not measure.' GHGMM is the application of science, engineering, and economic principles to improve the way society mitigates the anthropogenic causes of global climate change. This includes developing and providing reliable performance metrics related to GHG emissions and removals and managing activities that reduce GHG emissions to and/or increase their removals from the atmosphere.

GHG measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) is the first component of GHGMM and is relevant to a variety of emission and removal accounting frameworks. each of which define the metrics that support particular mitigation policies and activities, such as those resulting from international treaties, domestic regulations, industrial efforts, or consumer actions. These GHG accounting frameworks include: global; national; sectoral/program/policy; technology/product/supply-chain; entity; facility; and project levels. Based on the pioneering and rigorous curriculum for professional development courses developed by GHGMI this text provides comprehensive coverage of the key GHG MRV issues, including:

' Designing, applying, and understanding the limitations of GHG protocols, standards, methodologies, emission inventories used for measuring and estimating GHG emissions and removals, as well as related technologies for all accounting frameworks and sectors.

' Designing and applying regulatory and compliance relevant MRV systems and rules for GHG emission and removal metrics, taking into account the context of policy developments and industry practices;

' Understanding and managing uncertainty in the measurement or estimation of GHG emissions, removals and storage;

' Establishing and enhancing quality assurance processes, including validation of approaches and verification of GHG emissions, removals and storage.
