CEEP establishes benchmark for Climate Justice
At CEEP, Climate Justice is part of a broader effort towards Environmental Justice. In 1998, CEEP’s research led to a sustainability-and-equity scenario based on the benchmark of GHG emissions rate limited to 2.6 – 3.3 tons of CO2 equivalent per person per year. CEEP research continues to explore new paradigms to reach equitable, sustainable and just policy measures, as well as examining the political and economic factors which impede the development of such measures.
