Tracking Global Carbon Emissions in Real-Time

Climate Change
Green Technology

Tackling the problem of climate change has been a difficult task because carbon emission data is collected after the fact, not as it happens. Climate TRACE, an initiative led by Watt Time and supported by former Vice President Al Gore, aims to track pollution in real-time so researchers can see exactly where it comes from. This initiative will set a new standard of transparency as countries can verify claims and hold each other accountable for sustainability commitments. Using innovative technology such as satellite image processing, machine learning and sensors, this tool will provide a more accurate picture of global emissions.
