Note to Editors about IGSD:

IGSD’s mission is to promote just and sustainable societies and to protect the environment by advancing the understanding, development, and implementation of effective, accountable, and democratic systems of governance for sustainable development. 

IGSD’s strategies focus on reducing non-CO2 climate pollutants — as a complement to cuts in CO2 — by reducing other short-live climate pollutants (HFCs, black carbon, tropospheric ozone, and methane) in various venues primarily outside the UNFCCC, including the Montreal Protocol (ranked the most effective of all past climate mitigation strategies in a study published in The Economist), the Climate & Clean Air Coalition to Reduce Short-Lived Climate Pollutants, as well as through national and regional laws and regulations. IGSD’s strategies also include measures to capture, reuse, and store CO2 after it is emitted, including biosequestration and mineralization strategies that turn carbon dioxide into stable forms for long-term storage without competing with food supply.
