  • Under the Paris Agreement, 195 countries have pledged to slash their greenhouse gas emissions to keep global temperature rise well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels.
  • A CO2 Monitoring Service planned for launch by 2026 should play a significant part in that, as EU’s Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring and Climate Change Services and several other European partners, including ECMWF, ESA and EUMETSAT, are developing ways to finetune carbon monitoring from up above and down below.
  • Across the world, a wide range of projects such as NOAA ESRL, ICOS and WMO GAW, record carbon concentrations at Earth’s surface.Those CO2 measurements at Earth’s surface are essential for the future monitoring service.
