C climate technology company that helps city planners transform climate ambition into executable and trackable climate action plans , has launched Impact Intelligence – a significant upgrade to its ClimateOS SaaS platform – to provide users with the economic data needed to unlock investment for their net zero pathways .
To secure both public and private investment , cities need to make Climate Investment Plans . These plans need to be compelling and supported with accurate and verifiable data . Impact Intelligence enables city planners to do this by calculating the economic costs and benefits of shifts to low carbon alternatives , such as increasing recycling capacity , changing energy supply or increasing public transport .
ClimateOS already helps planners in more than 50 cities and the nation of Sweden , to develop climate action plans , execute them and measure their impact in real-time . Impact Intelligence has already successfully been trialled in the city of Helsingborg .
Tomer Shalit , Founder and CPO of ClimateView , said : “ Securing finance to realise a city ’ s net zero targets is not an easy task for city planners . While cities might have ambitious climate goals , they typically lack the necessary analysis to be able to approach investors with their climate action plans . We have developed Impact Intelligence to help city planners get the economic and environmental analysis they need to make compelling Climate Investment Plans , which unlock public and private funding .
“ It ’ s exciting to think of the impact this could have when you consider how much cities contribute to global greenhouse emissions . We look forward to working with new and existing clients to help cities achieve their decarbonisation targets .”
THE PLAN CLARIFIES WHICH INVESTMENTS WILL AFFECT THE CLIMATE , WHICH ARE NEEDED TO ACHIEVE CARBON NEUTRALITY AND THEN SHOWS THE MUNICIPALITY WHERE BEST TO SPEND ITS MONEY .
