Dundee is the first local authority in Scotland to use the ClimateOS platform, digitising its climate data in a bid to speed up climate action and reach its goal of Net Zero emissions by 2045.
Our Dundee Climate Action Plan is integrated into this software to help us calculate how far the actions in our plan will take us to Net Zero. We can then co-design and model new actions with partners, ensuring the plan is digitised and dynamic.

We will use the tool to: 

• Calculate and model decarbonisation scenarios that align with our Net Zero commitments. 
• Engage and co-create new actions with partners
• Communicate progress through clear data visualisation to the public and decision-makers.
• Monitor the impact of climate policies.

The tool is based on the idea of transition targets for example, transition from higher carbon activities, such as driving fossil fuel cars, to lower carbon activities such as cycling. Actions in our plan wil help us to meet these targets for example, increasing local cycling infrastructure as set out in our Cycling Strategy. 

Each target for Dundee was estimated with partners and using the local and national data, strategies and policies as guidance. All of the data used, and assumptions made are detailed within the tool. 

How to use the tool:

By selecting the Getting Dundee to Net Zero button, you can learn about how we are using the tool, this will take you to the dashboard.

By selecting Explore the Plan on the top right, you can view and interact with the dashboard straightaway without the introduction.

On the left side of the board, select an element for example, Transportation and keep selecting the elements you are interested in until your reach the final transition target. Scroll down the page to find out what actions and strategies are helping to reach those targets. 

On the right-hand side, the graphic shows you our transition pathway. As you can see, when all of the actions in the plan reach their potential, we still have a gap of 376kt CO2e emissions to reduce (the unaddressed emissions); now we need to develop new actions and test them out in the tool to see how much further we can reduce these emissions by.
