Based at Princeton University, the Carbon Mitigation Initiative (CMI) is an independent academic research program sponsored by BP and administered by the Princeton Environmental Institute (PEI). Established in 2000, CMI is Princeton’s largest and most long-term industry-university relationship. Its mission is to lead the way to a compelling and sustainable solution to the carbon and climate change problem.
CMI currently includes 16 lead faculty investigators and over 50 research staff and students. The program brings together scientists, engineers, and policy experts to investigate the dual challenge of supplying the energy that the world needs without emitting greenhouse gases that change the climate. Since its inception, CMI has been committed to the dissemination of its research findings so they may benefit the larger scientific community, government, industry, and the general public.
