How Google’s Environmental Insights Explorer (EIE) is supporting Izmir in the identification of low carbon mobility options

Izmir Metropolitan Municipality has used Google‘s EIE Transportation Emissions and Trips data to better understand their transport sector‘s carbon footprint and the mobility patterns of citizens. EIE is a tool utilising various data sources and modelling capabilities to assist cities in assessing emissions sources, conducting analyses, and formulating strategies for impactful actions. The EIE five-year data from 2018 – 2022 allows the city to have complete information on trips occurring in the city, including private vehicles, buses, bikes, motorcycles, and ferry data. It also identifies low-carbon mobility options that inform the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) and the Carbon Neutrality Roadmap.
