The Carbon Mitigation Initiative (CMI) is an independent academic research program housed within the High Meadows Environmental Institute at Princeton University.1 Sponsored by bp, 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 problem.
Since its inception in 2000, CMI has advanced understanding of climate and energy science, technology, and policy. Actively led by 13 principal faculty, the program currently engages an additional 40 research staff and students. These scientists, engineers and policy experts are committed to the dissemination of their joint and individual research findings so they may benefit the larger scientific community, government, and the general public
