Natural Resource Data Feeds – Questions

Leave a comment

Since carbon management systems rely on collecting reliable data, several questions arise:

  • What data are available on natural resource use in organizations (water, gas, heat, etc.)? 
  • What is the form are these data (paper, electronic feeds, etc.)?
  • If they are in paper form, who inputs the data and into what sort of system?
  • How do the various systems that hold various types of data speak to one another?
  • What is the cost of this data collection, for enhanced data collection, and who pays it?
