Greenhouse gas emissions inventory monitoring and verification programme

The UK’s greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory is reported by BEIS annually and is used to assess the UK’s progress against domestic and international climate targets. The aim of this monitoring and verification programme is to independently verify the emissions reported in the inventory, using top-down atmospheric measurements.

The programme:
– Identifies discrepancies between atmospheric concentrations and the inventory, informs the parallel inventory improvements programme, and helps to ensure the inventory is a reliable evidence base for informing policy decisions.
– Allows the UK to contribute to international scientific research, e.g. through membership of European and global measurement networks.
