Kayrros will work with Doconomy to process and package its data with an eye to making them more relevant and targeted to individual consumers, educate the public on the respective shares of various sectors in their country’s climate footprint, and keep end-users informed of day-to-day changes in emission levels and the reasons for these changes.
The announcement of the partnership takes place at COP26 in Glasgow, recognizing the importance of significant collaborative efforts to bridge the gap towards solutions to climate change. The teams intend to deliver their beta products by spring 2022, enabling citizens to engage with real-time GHG emissions data wherever they are.
“We are incredibly excited about this partnership, which takes Kayrros’s mission from the corporate terrain into the sphere of consumers and the general public.” said Antoine Rostand, CEO of Kayrros. “Combatting climate change is an issue for every individual, and yet there are few tools that quantify and communicate GHG emissions to consumers in a factual and accessible way. Our partnership with Doconomy will be a standard bearer for informing citizens globally of the challenge of climate change wherever they are situated and encouraging them to have a say on climate change.”
“Looking at the data Kayrros can provide on global emissions, one is quite overwhelmed,” said Doconomy CEO Mathias Wikström. “We see great potential in this innovative partnership, which will enable us to communicate broadly about something that remains complex and at times unapproachable for the general public. We truly believe that this partnership has the potential to substantially contribute to further educating about the global effects of climate change.”
Consumer-facing emissions data will educate, engage and empower individuals to track greenhouse gas emissions at the local or country level in real-time and give them greater appreciation for how current emission levels measure against historical trends, deeper understanding of how changes in corporate practices and public policies can affect them, and greater control over their own private contribution to global warming.
