Overview

We build strong teams to match specific needs

Since founding Aether we have developed strong links with many associates and organisations. We are members of influential groups to support national and international decision making.

When building teams for projects we can draw on a wide range of skills and expertise across Europe and globally.

Organisations

Aether is represented nationally and internationally

Air Quality Expert Group (AQEG)

Aether contributes to the Air Quality Expert Group (AQEG,) a prestigious UK Government advisory group. Chris Dore provides expertise in the emissions inventory field and also contributes on a wide range of aspects of air quality in the UK.

Coalition on Paris Agreement Capacity Building

Aether has been closely involved in the establishment of the Coalition on Paris Agreement Capacity Building. The coalition sets out to provide thought leadership on the development of Measuring, Reporting and Verification systems to inform decision makers and track progress on climate action.

European Topic Centre (ETC) for Air pollution and Climate change Mitigation

Aether contributes to this large programme of technical work for the European Environment Agency (EEA), with 13 other organisations from across Europe. The work requires specialists to deliver key technical information, data analysis and policy support services to the EEA.

Task Force on Emissions Inventories and Projections (TFEIP)

Aether is funded by the UK Government to provide leading roles in the organisation and management of the TFEIP, including the role of Chair. Aether arranges the annual meeting enabling worldwide air quality emissions experts to network, share best practice and new research findings.
