New software helps urban planners digitally test different transport options for carbon reduction

The continued growth in global urbanisation is leading to increased demand for infrastructure and services, thereby driving resource shortages. In fact, the World Bank estimates that cities in developing countries will need $4.5-5.4 trillion (around €4.2-5 trillion) in annual infrastructure investments between now and 2050.

Helping local governments find ways to meet that demand while also reducing the environmental burden is Japanese company Spatial Pleasure. The company is building Digital, Measurement, Reporting and Verification (DMRV) software to track urban transport decarbonisation efforts. The platform will measure and certify carbon credits for organisations working to clean up, strengthen, and improve urban public transport options.
