The Research and Intelligence Group identifies opportunities for high-return, large-scale carbon reduction over the next 10 years.


The Research and Intelligence Group works to identify opportunities that have cost-negative, billion ton scale carbon reduction potential over the next 10 years.

Our primary audience is the investment community, entrepreneurs, NGO's, and policymakers.

We have identified 17 sub-sectors across seven sectors. Each sector accounts for over 1 billion tons (or more than 2%) of global CO2e emissions annually. These sectors encompass the full spectrum of challenges that must be met to implement a low carbon economy.


The Research and Intelligence Group works with some of the most talented graduate students globally and has a large network of experts both within academia and industry. We partner with some of the leading think-tanks, industry groups and NGOs working in the environmental space to disseminate the results of our research, and affect real and lasting positive change. Research is conducted through a transparent and dynamic process focused on achieving real world outcomes.
