    The data most organisations use to calculate their GHG Scope 2 emissions is highly inaccurate. Not only does this risk painful accusations of greenwashing, and incorrect offsetting of carbon emissions, but it also hides many actionable insights that could help reduce their overall emissions. There is a better way. 24/7, location specific data that not only improves the understanding of your emissions and keeps up with changing reporting regulations, but also helps you reduce them and is intrinsic to the sustainable running of electric vehicle fleets.
