This paper presents air transport's two major characteristics: a strong growth in emissions that the technological and organisational progress is currently unable to contain and secondly, the fact that international air tr[...]
Rapidly evolving over the past decade, international maritime transport contributes significantly to global anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, exceeding those of the civil aviation sector.
Carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) prevents the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere by recovering carbon dioxide at the emitting facilities and then storing it or using it, possibly after tran[...]
The category of fugitive emissions covers a vast number of poorly controlled emissions: accidental, diffuse or unproductive. Fugitive emissions represent a significant proportion of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissio[...]
Globally, rail is a mode of transport that does not emit much in the way of greenhouse gases. This paper demonstrates how the rail sector seems to be a relatively low GHG emitter but that the reality is still quite different....
An efficient transport system is crucial for India as it witnesses rising demand for transport services and related infrastructure.
In the country’s Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC), submitted in preparation for the COP 21 in 2015, Côte d’Ivoire signaled its intention to reduce gross GHG emissions by 28% by 2030 compared to 2012 levels.
Portugal, a country that is home to 10 million people, has become one of the European champions of renewable energies for electricity production, thanks to the growth of onshore wind, hydro-electricity, biom[...]
The American power sector reveals the importance of non-state actors. We will conduct a three-part analysis of the recent evolution of CO2 emissions in the United States’ electrical sector and the role of different non-state ac[...]
In 2016, in metropolitan France, the land sector was used to offset 9% of the emissions of other sectors. The goal is to reach 100% or more by 2050, both by reducing emissions and increasi[...]
Canada is located in latitudes where climate change is particularly felt, however in 2016, its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the residential sector decreased despite an increase in energy consumption.
Canada needs to achieve total decarbonisation of its electricity production by 2050 if it is to achieve its climate commitments.
