The CitySwitch Pathways to Net Zero Carbon Emissions Tool is designed to enable tenants to assess the different options available to reduce their property-related greenhouse gas emissions.
Net zero pathways developed using the tool are a combination of energy efficiency, off-site renewable energy procurement (GreenPower and Purchased Power Agreements) and carbon offsets.
When using the tool:
- The Dashboard tab presents the results of the building portfolio and enables the user to toggle different variables to achieve net zero emissions by a specified year
- The Report Builder tab summarises the results in a format that can be ‘printed’ to another document
- The Input tab is where users enter building data (as with previous versions of the waterfall tools you have seen)
- The Assumptions tab contains the underlying assumptions that can be edited, or left as default values.
