The Carbon Majors website is based on ground-breaking research on 90 entities (investor-owned, state-owned, and government-run fossil fuel and cement producers) that are responsible for producing the fuels that have resulted in 63 percent of the global cumulative emissions of industrial carbon dioxide and methane between 1751 and 2010.

Combined heat and power (CHP), also known as cogeneration , is the use of a thermal power station to provide both electric power and heat (the latter being used . for district heating purposes). This technology is practiced not only for domestic heating (low temperature) but also for industrial process heat, which is often high temperature heat. Calculations show that Combined Heat and Power District Heating (CHPDH) is the cheapest method in reducing (but not eliminating) carbon emissions, if conventional fossil fuels remain to be burned.
