Press conference: launch of militaryemissions.org
Scientists will launch a new website dedicated to showcasing the dire state of military greenhouse gas emissions reporting to the UNFCCC.

The United States lobbied for military emissions to be excluded from the Kyoto Protocol. The Paris Agreement made reporting them voluntary. As a result, military emissions reporting lags far behind that of other highly polluting sectors. The new website – www.militaryemissions.org – will bring these voluntary reports into one place for the first time, allowing visitors to see what their countries do, and don’t report.

Speakers

Introducing militaryemissions.org | Doug Weir, Research and Policy Director, CEOBS
The state of military emissions reporting | Linsey Cottrell, Environmental Policy Officer, CEOBS
Closing the military emissions gap | Dr Benjamin Neimark, Lancaster University

Followed by Q&A.

Organised by

militaryemissions.org is a collaboration between the Conflict and Environment Observatory (CEOBS) and the ESRC-funded project ‘Concrete Impacts’.

Concrete Impacts is a UKRI-Economic Social Research Council funded collaboration between Lancaster and Durham Universities examining the socio-ecological effects of military supply chains and its wider environmental footprints.
