One of my first assignments now that I’m back working as an independent consultant was to support the Open Data Institute to develop a working paper on data, the built environment and climate action.
The draft paper was released on Monday, to coincide with the start of COP26, and ahead of the Open Data Institute’s Summit – and it will be open for comments and further input until 19th October.
Over here on Twitter I’ve put together a brief thread of some of the key messages in the report.
Thread: Built environment accounts for around 40% of the UK’s total carbon footprint (similar worldwide). Better data sharing has role to play in addressing operational (from use) & embodied (from construction) emissions, increasing transparency, & improving resilience. 1/n https://t.co/23fZCajAQ8 pic.twitter.com/02qVztJl2z
