Large companies have social and investment responsibilities. Choices made today could lock us into carbon intensive pathways, or lead the world to achieve net zero and put the brakes on climate change. Carbon Emission Accounts and Datasets (CEADs.net) are key to helping companies and governments plan towards global carbon neutrality. Apart from being an interesting set of accounts, they provide emission data for emerging economies, their regions and cities, plant level emission accounts for global infrastructures, and carbon footprints for Forbes 2000 companies.
