Understand the impact of policy and consumption through live air quality data
We all know that there are issues with air quality all around the UK, we’ve heard the statistics and read the articles but do you know the extent of the issue in your local area? With local authorities responsible for reviewing air quality in their area, there’s a lack of live data to better understand how activities within a place truly impact on air quality and the environment. We work with local authorities to collect the right data, find insights and drive better outcomes for local stakeholders.
Some of the Key Challenges in Managing our Environment
Lack of Understanding & Live Data
We’ve found that while local authorities understand that there might be an issue with air quality in their local area, they have no real data to prove/disprove this, or they lack the depth of data to fully understand air quality in their area and the impact of policies or strategies used to mitigate. Often the data they have if any is historical and limited in the information provided.
It’s been generally accepted that overconsumption of different utilities can lead to negative environmental impact. Whilst this might be the case, data on accurate consumption is often limited and hard to obtain. Understanding how utilities are consumed and other such resources can help identify trends and relationships between different variables and air quality.
With limited data collected on the environment currently, the information that is discovered is often kept in different areas, siloed away from one another. This means that there’s limited understanding of the relationships between different variables such as consumption, traffic, more events etc. and increased difficulty in managing a multi-agency response for environmental action. Having the data available in one single source alongside other metrics deepens understanding and promotes a proactive response.
