Luhui's speak mainly focused on the current challenges under COVID-19. Project extension, Budget adjustment and possibly cancellation and work from home were all the challenges we faced. Carbonstop's solution included: 1. update on every week meeting; 2. fight the difficulty with optimistic mind; 3. strategic adjustment: more time and work for basis: database collection and basic development. The unexpected pandemic has negative influence on many enterprises, change the challenge into opportunities and adjustment in time will alleviate the situation.
"2020 World Environment Day Riding Event" starts now! This event is held by organising committee for the ride of the Bohai, CODOON Sports. The event starts from 5 June to 7 June 24:00 and the registration ends in 7 June 22:00. If you ride more than 6.5km and upload your trace of riding, you can get a CODOON badge and rewards. Moreover, if you continue ride with 2020 Bohai riding after this event, you can get more rewards. Carbonstop calculated the carbon reduction of the riding event. every 6,5km riding can reduce 680g CO2e. We hope wen could participate in more activities like this, so every can enjoy the fun from reducing carbon emission action.
Recently, the “Green List” evaluation index system prepared by the Carbonstop has been completed and released. The launch of the “Green List” originated from the green supply chain action of the Chinese real estate industry. The green supply chain action was launched on June 5, 2016. The day was initiated by five organizations, including SEE, Zhongcheng Alliance, All-China Real Estate Chamber of Commerce, Vanke and Landsea. The "green list" is a new action that focuses on climate change carbon emissions after the "white list." Green List carbon calculator: http://see.carbonstop.net/
Recently, Carbonstop updated the carbon emission factor database, and more product carbon emission factors have been added. Now the data have reached 80,000. Carbon emission factors database is one of functions of Carbonstop mini-program "carbon intelligence", collecting data from different nations/regions and industry. Until 27 September 2019, the database has more than 46,000 data. the total visits reached 12,402 while the search reached 10697.The establishment of the carbon emission factors database is to fulfill the original purpose of building carbon footprints for the low-carbon industry. Therefore, an open, convenient and free data platform is established to enable more industries, companies and even individuals to understand carbon emissions and implement carbon reduction in the future .
From 9 April to 26 April 2020, Microsoft launched the WeChat mini-program "Low Carbon Emission Reduction, Walk with You". Users can redeem rewards by walking and ranking with their friends. Carbonstop as a technical support party participated in this event, and provided carbon reduction accounting for the event. The calculation method of carbon emission reduction of walking in the activity mainly focused on the difference between the baseline scenario emissions and the project scenario emissions. The baseline scenario emissions are the average carbon emissions generated by common travel modes, including bus, subway, taxi, and self-driving according to the actual situation. The project scenario emissions are the basic carbon emissions from walking, which is zero. After scientific calculation of Carbonstop, every step taken can reduce carbon emissions by about 0.0627g. If you choose walk rather than driving for your commuting, you can reduce carbon emissions by about 313.5g per 5000 steps.
