A non-profit research and educational organization. Its research revolves around climate change and accountability, specifically the contribution of fossil fuel producers’ carbon production to atmospheric carbon dioxide content. CAI’s strategy is to leverage accountability by carbon producers into using their assets to aid rather than oppose the transition to a low-carbon or zero-carbon energy future. The institute works to maintain communications and publicity with individuals and groups interested in or related to the major themes it tackles. It also strives to establish meaningful collaborations with like-minded people from different universities and organizations in order to partner up in conducting insightful and thought-provoking research.
- Carbon Majors Reports: shows “which institutions have extracted the fossil fuels that have been the root cause of global warming since the Industrial Revolution.”
- Attributing ocean acidification to major carbon producers (December 2019, 15p): informs “societal considerations of the climate responsibilities of major industrial carbon producers.”
