How to navigate the dashboard

The dashboard can be understood as a complete summary of the required and planned emissions reductions to reach your climate goal sector by sector, transition by transition. This is being visualized through different layers, as we explain below.

By clicking on any sector, you start to drill down into your transition plan as defined in your Transition hierarchy: For each layer (sector, sub-sector, Transition element groups, Transition elements), you will see the percentage of your baseline year emissions caused and the planned emissions reduction until your goal year. The last layer of your dashboard visualizes the transition plan for each individual Transition element. It shows the percentage of emissions being shifted and thereby eliminated through this Transition element, the total amount of actions targeted, their CO2 equivalent and the target for the current year (2022 in this case). To the right, you can see a graph depicting the reduction of GHG emissions, which corresponds to the ambition you set per year for each Transition element until your goal year.

All the emission figures shown in the dashboard are your city's start year emissions calculated bottom-up!

The Dashboard

The first layer of your dashboard provides a high-level overview of the emissions (calculated bottom-up) you are planning to reduce, and their current distribution by sector. This is shown by the size of the rectangle in the diagram on the left. The sectors correspond to the ones you defined in your Transition hierarchy.

The size of the sector’s rectangles in this overview will change according to the changes you make in your city inventory and the target values you set for your Transition elements. On the right, you see the estimated transition pathway until your target year with the projected emissions reductions based on the targets you set in your Transition elements.

You can now click on the sector as a whole and drill deeper from there, or you can click on individual Transition elements to get to them directly.

Your Transition by Sector, Sub-Sector, and Transition Elements

By clicking on any given sector, which represent the second layer of your dashboard, you dive deeper into the shifts planned for it. The percentage of potential emission reduction on the very left represents the share of the emissions of your set start year coming from this sector. In the example in Fig. X, the whole transportation sector accounts for 36% of your current emissions. To the right of your baseline emissions, you will see the sub-sectors, the size of their rectangle representing their relative share in the sector’s total emissions. The icons within each of them represent the Transition elements you chose to add to them.

As you drill down into the sub-sector, you dive deeper into the distribution of emissions. What you see now are the Transition Element groupings, as defined in your Transition hierarchy. Fig Y shows the following example: Of your current emissions in year 2018 (your baseline year), 20% fall under the sub-sector of personal mobility, summing up to 619kt that need to be shifted to low-carbon alternatives. As always, the rectangles in this view - and their respective size - represent the share of emissions to be shifted to each of the listed transition element groupings. The icons within each of them represent the Transition elements you chose to add to them.

Taking yet another step deeper into your dashboard, you get to the emissions shift distribution for each sub-sector as defined in the Transition Hierarchy. 






The last and most detailed level is the Transition element itself. Here, the graphic shows the target and progress diagram that provides information about the saved emissions until your goal year, if the target value is reached, as well as your current progress illustrated by a white line. These values are taken directly from the targets you have input for each individual Transition element in the “Pathways” section of ClimateOS.
