Using data as a weapon to tackle climate change.

I describe some of AMEE's journey: through open data aggregation and distribution, accessibility, provenance, and structure.

But better data isn't enough - no one (well, few) really cares about the science or the technology we need to engage with stakeholders to provide meaningful insight and relevance to their business.

  1. 1. Using data as a weapon to tackle climate change@agentGav –
  2. 2. How might we footprint everything on Earth?
  3. 3. What if … we aggregated the worlds standards into a single platform?
  4. 4. AMEE structures environmental standards into a Data Science Service Data ScienceContinuously aggregate, Millions ofstructure, codify, QA, models andand link data models. answers- Carbon footprinting- Energy & emissions monitoring- Energy Efficiency- Compliance reporting- Risk management- Audit and verification- Lifecycle & input / output analysis
  5. 5. Easy, free access to Environmental Intelligence – Everywhere Open data Accessible Full provenance Addressable Updated AskAMEE is a computable search engine that finds and calculates emissions – right from the search box –
  6. 6. AMEE provides easy access to Environmental Intelligence – Everywhere
  7. 7. What if … we enabled any consumption or activity data to be capturedfrom any system, software or sensor?
  8. 8. Environmental Intelligence for 1.8 million UK homes Personalised efficiency and reduction tipsWorking with UK Gov to createworlds first national carboncalculator:footprint 1.8 million homes+ personalised money-saving tips+ national benchmarking+ analytics Personalised benchmarking Example: National analysis of appliance efficiency from 500,000 homes
  9. 9. Environmental Intelligence integrated with any sensorAutomated data-capture frommultiple-vendor sensors, bycreating an Open-Source DataStandard: AMON is structured to handle anyenvironmental data(e.g. electricity, temperature,humidity) at any time resolution. Realtime environmental data collection and analysis
  10. 10. Embed Environmental Intelligence in building and product design Impact calculation at the design stage
  11. 11. How are we going to makeenvironmental intelligence mainstream?
  12. 12. 1. Climate politics has failed / is too slow2. A small number of innovators are engaged3. CSR is too complex/costly for mass-market4. Environment isnt seen as a financial imperative (and nobody really cares about the science or the technology)
  13. 13. But environmental risks are increasing, and are financially relevant.
  14. 14. What if… we created an environmental score for every company on Earth? - Addressable as part of fiduciary duty (risk) - Quantifiable in asset management - Material in procurement and supply-chain assessment - Re-assess definitions of value and growth - Integrate environment into business
  15. 15. Making the environment relevant to businessesRedefine value to “triple-bottom line” (#TBL) = economic + environmental + social→ Combine environmental data with global economic data→ Use supply-chain engagement and procurement as forcing-functions to catalyse engagement→ Facilitate collaboration, at-scale, between companies→ Make environmental insight valuable to the CFO
  16. 16. An environmental score for every company in the UK 2.8 million companies scored (launch Q4) Open data - accessible - transparent - addressable - updated
