In the midst of international attention on Korea’s Green Growth progress, the Greenhouse Gas Inventory & Research Center of Korea (GIR) was launched on June 15, 2010, on the legal grounds of the "Framework Act on Green Growth", in order to act as a greenhouse gas inventory hub and greenhouse gas mitigation research think tank. 

It has made much progress since the original announcement of Korea’s new vision of "Low Carbon, Green Growth" at the 60th Anniversary of the Founding of the Republic on August 15, 2008. The voluntary national midterm greenhouse gas reduction target was introduced in November 2009, and the "Framework Act on Low Carbon, Green Growth" was enacted in April 2010. 

GIR operates on the following principles :
First, securing top experts on staff, and providing opportunities for continuous training and advancement;
Second, balancing interests of multiple stakeholders, and committing to keep a neutral and objective stance;
Third, systematizing the cooperation among relevant institutions with greenhouse gas related research and information, and building a diverse network of domestic and foreign stakeholders.
