Terms of Use


The 2030 Forecast website is a platform enabling individuals to follow carbon dioxide emissions developments on a national level. Thanks to our data provider Kayrros, we display greenhouse gas emissions estimations through combining satellite imagery, big data and advanced algorithms to provide a global carbon dioxide emissions (expressed in tons of CO2 or CO2e)  monitoring platform.

This approach has a benefit of an increased frequency in the availability of data updates – within days as opposed to months or years – and serve as a complement to official reported data.

You can read more about the methodology behind the 2030 Forecast on www.2030forecast.com.

These Terms of Use govern the terms for using the 2030 Forecast platform. By accepting these terms you enter into this Agreement.

1. Parties and effectiveness of this Agreement

1.1 When we refer to ”we” or ”us” in this Agreement, we mean Doconomy AB, a private limited company incorporated in Sweden (Reg. No. 559163-0602) and having its registered office at Östermalmsgatan 26A, Stockholm 114 26, Stockholm, Sweden.

1.2 When we refer to ”you” in this Agreement, we mean the individual visiting and using the website and/or application (as applicable) pursuant to the terms set out in this Agreement.

1.3 This Agreement means this Terms of Use between you and us, as the same may be altered or supplemented by us from time to time, which applies to your use of the Platform.

2. Definitions and Interpretation

Category Emissions means the greenhouse gas emissions (expressed in tons of CO2 or CO2e ) related to the specific categories mentioned, as further set out in Section 4. 

Data means all or any part of the Category Emissions data displayed on the Platform. 

Intellectual Property Rights means patents, registered designs, trademarks, copyright, design rights, data usage rights, rights in and to confidential information and know-how, any rights to apply for any of the foregoing, and any rights analogous to the same anywhere in the world, whether registered or unregistered.

Sponsors means the organizations sponsoring (by making available) the Category Emissions related to a specific country.    

Platform means the 2030 Forecast website or application (as applicable).

User means an individual who entered the Platform. 

3. Purpose of the Platform

3.1 The purpose of the Platform is to enable individuals to follow greenhouse gas emissions on a national level and to visualize for each represented country how Category Emissions are progressing against halving by 2030, in line with IPCC recommendations to meet the Paris Agreement goal of limiting temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius by the end of this century.

3.2 The Greenhouse Gas Emissions are presented as carbon dioxide or carbon dioxide equivalent value (expressed in tons of CO2 or CO2e)

Where CO₂ value is a way to measure and display the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere, CO2e focuses on a more holistic approach and covers the amount of different greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, by considering and adding each gas’s effect on climate change. Through this latter approach, the gases are converted to the equivalent amount of carbon dioxide to enable comparison. 

3.3 Users are only allowed to use the Platform and the Category Emissions for informational purposes. It is not allowed to publish or otherwise make available the Category Emissions or use them for any direct or indirect commercial purposes. 

4. Category Emissions

4.1 The Category Emissions are an average estimate of emissions produced by the following Category Emissions: Energy (coal, oil, gas, waste), Industry (cement, steel, others), Ground Transport and Domestic Aviation. This does not include emissions associated from another country, such as CO2 or CO2e emissions on imported goods and services.

4.2 The Category Emissions are provided “as is”. We make no representation of the completeness or accuracy of the Data or the Category Emissions.

4.3 The Category Emissions are protected by national and international laws, such as copyright laws, database rights and/or treaties.

5. Liability
