In addition to separately following up the measures and actions sections, you will also need a number of global insights: how is my total progress? What sectors experience the greatest savings? What does the total cash flow of my climate plan look like? And per party?

Find out in this article which graphs and insights you will get!

1. Progress of the measures: Am I on schedule?

The first graph (under “Progress”) shows an overview of the absolute progress of all measures (scaled according to tonnes of CO₂ reduction). 

Global progress

You will first see the global aggregated progress of the entire climate plan (scaled according to tonnes of CO₂ reduction). You will immediately see the current reduction of every sector and how far away you are from your global objective. 

Progress per sector

The second part visualises the aggregated objective and progress per sector, also with regard to tonnes of CO₂ reduction.

Progress per measure

The last part shows the progress per measure. The measures having the highest CO₂ reduction are shown at the top. In this way, you will immediately see which measures must be prioritised to make your climate plan succeed.

Tip: Click sectors on or off! If you click one of the sectors under “Global progress” or “Progress per sector”, you will see the progress of the measures for that sector.

2. How to combine measures into profitable investments

Do you often hear the argument that 'climate measures cost a lot'? Actually, some of them cost money, but a lot of them also save you money (in the long term). What if you would combine these measures into a set of profitable measures?

Our mitigation cost curve in FutureproofedCities can help you build this set of profitable measures, find budget and convince policy makers and investors!

How does this work?

Looking at a 10 or 20 year scale, many of your measures can be profitable. Combining the right measures (some profitable, some costly) can result in an overall package that generates a net profit for your city and combines all the reductions in CO₂ emissions of those measures.
We are sure this bundling of measures is important to convince policy makers or investors to support your plan. Cool that we have the right tool for you to do that, isn't it?

3. Emissions and consumptions per sector and fuel

This part shows you the evolution of the (energy) consumptions and emissions of each sector and fuel type in the past (validated data, in brighter colours) and in the future (forecast, in lighter colours). 

In the meantime, you can read here how FutureproofedCities forecasts your emissions in the future .

4. CO₂ impact by sector

In the “CO₂ impact per sector” graph, you will see the distribution of the forecast CO₂ reduction for the various sectors (provided all measures are executed). In this way you will check whether your sectors having the greatest impact also contribute most to the reduction, for example.

5. Cashflow: Which parties invest and save much or little?

You will see our best estimates of the total cash flows of all the measures on the “Cash flow” graph. You will also find these separately under every measure. 

You can do one of the following to filter according to separate parties (city, individuals, companies, industries, agriculture, etc.):

  • select a party beside the title

  • click every party below on or off.

The investments have been recouped the moment the cumulative cash flow is equal to zero.

6. Savings: How much money does my climate plan save after 15 years?

The “Savings” graph shows our best estimates of total savings and investments for all the measures in total – after a period of 15 years. The bar on the right shows the net savings. 

7. Co-benefits

In the "Co-benefits" tab, you can find two graphs showing which co-benefits and SDGs are most affected by your climate plan. The darker inner parts of the graph show the progress already made on the measures that focus on the given co-benefit or SDG.

Via the "All plans and clusters" button, you have the option to filter the graphs on the structure of your choice in order to view the relevant co-benefits or SDGs.
