Data should be as open as possible, while protecting people’s privacy, commercial confidentiality and national security. Data from multiple organisations is needed to address challenges and the data needs to be accessible. Open Net Zero is a starting point for net-zero data infrastructure built to address commercial, non-commercial, government and public needs. It is designed to help make net-zero data discoverable, accessible and usable.
There is substantial Open Data related to net zero (e.g. company disclosures) and we aim to make this far more discoverable than it is today.
However, much of the data needed to drive net-zero decisions is not opnly licensed or free for anyone to use. We aim to make this data more discoverable. To address restricted usage, we are building a Trust Framework for data sharing — enabling Shared Data to be discovered and licensed at scale.
