The amount of sustainability data available to businesses and consumers is rapidly increasing. While that is generally a good thing, it's also making it harder to find what you are looking for. And once you have waded through the data and found something of interest it can be hard to determine how credible and complete it is.
How can you be sure you can trust the data you've come across?
We believe that the world of sustainability data is already too complex and confusing, and that's holding us back collectively. To help, Cogo has created The Good Impact Framework (GIF), an easy guide which businesses and consumers can use to understand their impact and enable them to take positive action.
The GIF helps define which sources of data are credible and organises them into four sustainability pillars: Climate, Waste, Land & Water, and Community. For each data source, we identify the credible certification and responsible affiliate organisations involved, so you don’t have to. The GIF is curated by Cogo and our partners who share our goal of driving more positive impact in the world.
Built by our team of world-leading carbon footprint specialists and data scientists, Cogo calculates your personalised carbon footprint in real-time, linked directly to your spending transactions and lifestyle choices.
Cogo’s carbon footprint tracker has been developed in partnership with our data science team and leading climate modelling experts in each of our markets.
In the UK we partner with Professor Mike Berners-Lee, a leader in carbon footprinting at Small World Consulting and author of the groundbreaking book 'How Bad Are Bananas?': The Carbon Footprint of Everything.
