GATE: Gobal Analysis of Trade-related Emissions

Project: Research

See relations at Aarhus University

Description

This project aim to initiate a new research area in the eco-industrial systems analysis group at the Department of Environmental Science (ENVS), evaluating the environmental impact associated with trade at different level of analysis. The aim is to create a solid platform addressing the knowledge-generation for assessment of trade-related emissions and externalities as a basis for measures to incentivize consumers and systems for climate mitigation and sustainable resource flows. Thereby, the research area draws on the knowledge of the emission inventories undertaken in the department as advisory services, while developing a new knowledge base for environmental and climate governance. The information generated is expected to provide important support to the GHG mitigation strategies, showing the effective potential of reduction of emissions embodied in trade. The new research area will fill in a needed void in the Department providing an additional knowledge and perspective.
