The so called Copernicus Space Component (CSC) Expansion programme includes new missions that have been identified by the European Commission (EC) as priorities for implementation in the coming years by providing additional capabilities in support of current emerging user needs. Subject of this procurement is the Phases A/B1 for one of these candidate missions, namely the Anthropogenic CO2 Monitoring Mission.This mission aims to analyse through the use of CO2 satellite imagers the man-made CO2 emissions and overall CO2budget at country and regional/megacity scales and assess the effectiveness of the relevant COP21 decisions. This requires the capability to provide satellite accurate and consistent quantification of anthropogenic CO2 emission and their trends. Subject to good quality proposals it is the intention to place 2 parallel contracts. Phase A/B1 will be funded by the fifth slice (EOEP-5) of the Earth Observation Envelope Programme, which is an optional programme of the Agency. Therefore the procurement will be open to all economic operators belonging to the ESA Member and Associated States and Canada, participating in said EOEP-5 Programme; to date: Austria,Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxemburg, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom and Canada.
