USING DATA ANALYTICS TO
CREATE SUSTAINABLE BUSINESSES
Over the past few years, the team at Susterra built a software package which provides accurate, detailed and up to date carbon footprint reports for all aspects of business travel; from flights to hotel stays.
At Susterra we believe the first step to sustainability is awareness of the environmental and social aspects of your business; this comes from accurate data. The second step to sustainability istransparency; this comes from reporting.
At Susterra we can help businesses to manage the environmental and social impact of what is within their organisational boundaries, beginning with travel.
The third step to sustainability is efficiency; this comes from accurate data and data analytics.
As our carbon footprint software is very accurate, at Susterra we are able to work with business and provide efficiency planning and mapping for business travel and supply chain management.
Carbon emissions are often directly proportional to cost, so by making business activities more efficient, businesses not only become more sustainable but also more cost effective.
At Susterra we are confident our aviation carbon footprint calculation software is one of the most accurate ever built. Whereas most calculators use averaged emission factors per distance traveled, our software is both airline and aircraft specific; generating substantially more accurate figures.
We plan to give developers the opportunity to utilise our software by launching an API, by the end of November 2015.
