Identify the actions with the biggest impacts

With custom metrics you can monitor where you stand and how much still needs to be done to reach the goals. The indicators can reveal the bottlenecks and show which actions are most effective in reducing emissions.

Not only for the climate actions

We have designed Kausal Watch originally to track and collaborate on climate strategies. However, after taking the service into use, our customers have wanted to use it for their other strategic programs too! Check out how Helsinki leverages the platform to track the actions for improving the everyday physical activity of citizens.

Our COVID-19 Response

As our response to COVID-19 pandemic, Kausal took action to help. We used our expertise in simulation modeling to build an agent-based REINA model to produce realistic scenarios about actions to tackle the epidemic.

We collaborate with academic experts to support policy makers in making well informed decisions.
