The Commission of Carbon Neutral Informatics (CNI) aims to promote carbon-related modeling research from both economic and environmental perspectives, supporting the identification, implementation and adaptation of desired carbon mitigation strategies. CNI is also focused on interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge related to renewable energy, energy storage, coal utilization, and CCUS (carbon capture, utilization and storage), as well as the dissemination of up-to-date development in these fields to a wide range of audiences. CNI’s missions include: (1) contributing to fundamental R&D of global warming and carbon neutrality, (2) developing advanced methodologies of environmental system analysis, (3) promoting applications to carbon capture, conversion, transport, and storage, (4) supporting decision makings for the vision of carbon neutrality, (5) facilitating communications among scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, and managers from a broad range of disciplines (e.g., atmospheric science, environmental biogeochemistry, geoscience, management science, and information technologies), and (6) providing education and training of cutting-edge technologies for CCUS and carbon neutrality. A number of innovative techniques promoted by CNI are being increasingly used by various individuals and organizations for the management of global carbon sources, resulting in significant contributions to worldwide carbon neutrality.
