Emission inventories - why are they important?

An emissions inventory is an account of the amount of pollution released into the environment. This could be an inventory for an entire country or just a small area, consisting of a wide range of pollutants or just a few. A carbon footprint is a very specific type of inventory associated with an individual, household, product or business.

The data in an emissions inventory enable policy makers to prioritise options to reduce the impacts of pollution on the environment. The data are also vital for monitoring progress towards emission reduction targets.

What's in a name?

Aether is the Greek air god of the upper atmosphere, responsible for the air breathed by the Gods.
