WRI launches online GHG Data Tool

WRI launches online GHG Data Tool

The World Resources Institute has launched an updated version of its online greenhouse gas emissions tool that WRI says can help businesses better understand and benchmark their county-level emissions.

The Climate Analysis Indicators Tool, or CAIT 2.0, is a free portal that provides data on GHG emissions from 185 countries and all 50 US states, plus other climate data. CAIT 2.0 allows users to view, sort, visualize and download data sets for comparative analysis. It can help firms adjust to different policies and improve longer-term emissions management, WRI spokesman Michael Oko tells Environmental Leader. “CAIT 2.0 can also help identify emission by sector, such as industrial emissions or transportation emissions, which can be helpful for businesses looking to benchmark their greenhouse gas contributions,” Oko says.

WRI launched the original CAIT in December 2003. CAIT 2.0 is more user-friendly, WRI says, allowing users to access the international GHG emissions data set, narrow it down by year, gas or county, for example, and create downloadable data visualizations. Also, each specific data view has a unique URL, making it easier to share links to specific findings.
