Most human economic activities release greenhouse gases into the earth's atmosphere. We use satellites and other remote sensing technologies to spot these emissions activities...
…not just the big, obvious things, but also the tricky ones that move...
...and the less obvious ones.
We combine many sources of information because the more we know about each emissions source, the better we get at finding and accurately measuring them.
Using satellites, ground truth measurements, and artificial intelligence we build models that estimate emissions right at the source.
With more and more information streaming in from space and sensors around the globe, our emissions estimates are continuously improving.

Getting Clear on Satellite Imagery
From Climate TRACE’s inception, using satellites to track human-caused greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to their sources has been a cornerstone of our technology-centric approach. But why satellites? How do they play a role? And which satellites are we using?.

This Al Gore-backed coalition is trying to hold climate polluters accountable
You can’t reduce carbon emissions if you don’t know where they’re coming from. And up until now, measuring who was emitting what and when was nearly impossible. Climate TRACE, though, is trying to change that by tracking greenhouse gas pollution around the world using satellites, machine learning and other tech..

What are Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML)?
Climate TRACE employs both artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) techniques to measure global greenhouse gas emissions. In this explainer, we take a closer look at what exactly that means. .

Understanding Greenhouse Gases
Greenhouse gases (GHGs) are gases in the earth’s atmosphere that trap heat and contribute to global warming of the planet via the greenhouse effect. In this article, we take a closer look at what they are, where they come from, and why they matter..

Collision Conference 2022: Using AI & satellites to spot every source of GHG emissions on Earth
In this session, Gavin McCormick – who, alongside former US vice president Al Gore, is a founding member of Climate TRACE – explains why he's come to believe that emissions transparency is poised to reshape the climate fight..
We make meaningful climate action faster and easier by mobilizing the global tech community to track greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions with unprecedented detail and speed.
