Mapping Europe’s carbon dioxide emissions

Mapping Europe’s carbon dioxide emissions

Our Emissions map (www.sandbag.org.uk/maps/emissions/) and Offset map (www.sandbag.org.uk/maps/offset/) combine data from the European commission (on carbon dioxide emissions of European factories and power plants) and the UN website (that tracks where companies are buying offset credits from in order to comply with their pollution allowance in the European Emissions Trading Scheme). Although this data is publicly available, it is hard to understand due to its complexity. We overlay the data onto a Google map, which highlights the biggest polluters in the scheme.
