The Mullion Group recently used FLINTpro to provide the underpinning data to support a new metric on greenhouse gas emissions from the world’s forests for the Environmental Performance Index produced by Yale University and Columbia University in collaboration with the World Economic Forum.
Now in its 22nd year, the Environmental Performance Index annual report has become the premier metrics framework for global environmental policy analysis – ranking 180 countries on 32 performance indicators across 11 issue categories covering environmental health and ecosystem vitality.
The results of this year’s 2020 EPI features several new metrics. The Mullion Group was engaged to use FLINTpro to expand the greenhouse gas accounts to include GHG emissions from tree cover change for this global environmental benchmark.
EPI Project director Zach Wendling noted that “the expanded issue coverage promises to deepen the global capacity for data-driven environmental policymaking, clarifying sustainability leaders and laggards, and helping to identify best policy practices.”
The expertise at the Mullion Group combined with the power of FLINTpro was central to this expansion. “While much of the underpinning data has been available for many years, what was missing was a tool to coherently integrate the data, run it at scale and present the results in a meaningful way. We developed FLINTpro fill this gap.” Says Dr. Waterworth, CEO of the Mullion Group, “Only by providing information to decision makers when they need it, in the format they need it, can we start to take meaningful action to address global sustainability challenges, like Climate Change”
