GCI is the perfect answer to wondering local authorities, about their global impact on the climate. They want to refine the measurement of their carbon footprint, particularly Scope 3, which is difficult to understand by the multiplicity of suppliers and service providers.
They thus wish to better measure their impact in order to reduce it, and possibly compensate for it.
