FLINTpro: Allowing Companies to Embrace Big Data Solutions for the Land Sector
To mitigate the long-term risks of climate change, and to deliver on commitments to the United Nations’ Paris Climate Agreement, policy makers, investors, and business leaders require new and more dynamic, enterprise-level management tools for environmental data. Meeting this need is key to unlocking the potential of nature-based solutions.
To meet this market demand, The Mullion Group and its partners developed a software system, FLINTpro TM (www.flintpro.com) that enables organizations to calculate and track greenhouse gas emissions from changes in land use and land management, through time and space, quickly and transparently. FLINTpro TM is uniquely scalable, allowing companies to use a combination of global, national and local data to produce estimates of emissions and other environmental metrics from the farm through to full enterprise level. FLINTpro TM resolves historically challenging data management issues of high-resolution traceability, jurisdictional nesting, GHG-methodology consistency, and integration of third-party data sets to provide useful policy and land management information.
