Multi-gas emission envelopes to meet greenhouse gas concentration targets

Article | 30-04-2007

The aim of this study is to develop multi-gas emission envelopes (consistent sets of emission pathways) for the six greenhouse gases (GHGs) covered under the Kyoto Protocol (CO2, CH4, N2O, HFCs, PFCs and SF6) that are compatible with stabilising GHG concentrations. The ultimate aim is to avoid dangerous climate change.
