A Roadmap for Mitigating Greenhouse Gases

There’s a clear consensus among scientists that global warming is caused by human activity. National, regional, and local authorities as well as companies need detailed roadmaps for mitigating greenhouse gas emissions that fit their needs and context without losing sight of long-term goals. A successful roadmap should:

  • Incorporate detailed inventories of greenhouse gas emissions and solid abatement strategies into climate change policies
  • Create plans to adjust to new energy realities
  • Develop abatement scenarios that prevent damage to economic and social development and that promote technological change
  • Prioritize abatement technologies according to both their potential and feasibility over the long and short term
  • Consider renewable technologies such as wind, solar, and bioenergy
  • Assess energy efficiency measures in the power generation, residential, industrial, and transportation sectors
