New Global Registry of Fossil Fuels to Enable Reserves Transparency

From Carbon Tracker:

Carbon Tracker and Global Energy Monitor (GEM) have built a prototype of the first-ever open-source, independent and accessible database of fossil fuels. The Global Registry of Fossil Fuels will be a concrete policy tool to measure what is being dug out of the ground, the associated emissions, and how those relate to a 1.5°C compatible pathway.

It will enable policymakers and experts around the world to assess whether countries are on track to meet their climate commitments and provide data and analytics tools for identifying a means of winding down fossil fuel production.


Over the next few months we’ll be refining and finalising the registry for a full open access public launch. We invite interested stakeholders to reach out to us for access to the registry, to record interest in attending an upcoming workshop and to provide feedback.
