I am so proud that we
have been recognized by Fast Company for our work with C40 Cities in
creating these climate change dashboards, as we collaborate to ensure a
sustainable future. I am confident that, together with C40 Cities, as well as
our partners and customers and additional organizations, we can continue to
drive positive changes in corporate and governmental environmental policy and
practice that will transform businesses and our planet for the better.
Data Explorer Applications
The dashboards, called Data Explorer applications and built on Qlik’s Data Analytics Platform, complement C40’s array of implementation guides, case studies and other resources on topics such as greenhouse gas emissions, air quality, waste, transportation, clean energy and climate hazards. If used effectively within cities, the dashboards can help cities see where they stand on key metrics and benchmark themselves against city peers, with the aim of improving decision making and accelerating the policies and investments necessary to prevent more catastrophic consequences of climate change. These dashboards also help cities to identify peers that face similar problems, promoting effective inter-city collaboration.
The Data Explorer applications sit within C40’s new Knowledge Hub, an online platform to consolidate insights, practical resources and experiences, and tested approaches from cities leading the way in delivering climate action. The Knowledge Hub, in conjunction with the Qlik-driven Data Explorer applications, allows cities to access policy briefs, technical guidance, the latest data and research, and a bank of case studies to catalyze action at greater speed and scale.
As we work with C40 Cities and other sustainability organizations to combat climate change, we will be continually looking at ways to leverage our data expertise to find opportunities to help businesses and governments pinpoint how they can take proactive steps to reduce their carbon footprint. Together, we can help drive and inform conversations and actions that help mitigate negative environmental impacts globally, improving life for ourselves and our Earth.
