The service provides estimates of average production of CO2 greenhouse gases as an indicator of typical carbon footprints for various activities. It is intended to be used for comparison with local carbon estimates to indicate whether activities are above or below the norm. Data may also help to adjust calculation algorithms.
API methods support retrieval of the list of industries and countries covered by the carbon footprint database. Applications can then retrieve data arrays for the companies within those categories that serve as benchmarks.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
