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 sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
