The Carbon Mitigation Initiative (CMI) at Princeton University is the longest running partnership with industry in the university’s history. Sponsored by bp and independently operated and administered by the High Meadows Environmental Institute (HMEI), CMI funds 15 principal investigators (PIs) and over 50 researchers who are tasked with finding compelling and sustainable solutions to the carbon and climate problems.
For 22 years, CMI has been leading the way in developing cutting-edge research in engineering, ecology, earth sciences, and environmental policy. This research has led to new insights into the impacts of climate change, developments in environmental engineering principles, and to salient policy recommendations and analyses that continue to impact the scientific and policy-making spheres, both domestically and internationally.
In this report, readers can find the latest information about CMI’s key activities and research initiatives. Each of the fourteen highlights, written by CMI PIs and their teams, features a summary of the latest, on-going research conducted by their groups. The Highlights section is followed by a complete list of this year’s CMI publications.
