We help cities address the climate crisis by providing tools to plan, manage and communicate climate efforts. The solutions we build leverage collaboration and systematic use of data.
Strategic Content and Data Publishing Platform
Kausal Watch web publishing platform collects all the data on the actions that your city is taking for climate mitigation. It helps your city to shift from traditional retrospective reporting into real-time monitoring. Kausal Watch works for both internal and external communication gathering all the relevant information in one place. Creating a common situation overview of the climate actions and emissions enables effective management of climate strategy. Kausal offers the platform setup, continuous maintenance and training.
Improve transparency with real time communication to residents and decision makers. By communicating what your city has already accomplished and what you plan to do next, you can turn climate anxiety into climate action. Visualization of the big picture helps to make sense of bigger and smaller climate actions.
Identify the next steps to put those climate goals into practice and use Kausal Watch to make sure they are not getting stalled. Don't let the climate goals be just strategy talk. Let's make sure they will become reality.
With Kausal Watch you can make climate actions everyone's business in your organization and help the employees make an impact. Creating a collaboration network gives everyone an important role and makes the coordination of climate actions easier.
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. Agreeing on indicators and target levels helps to make sure that the climate strategy is actually implemented successfully.
With the help of Climate Watch, we are shifting from traditional annual reporting towards real-time monitoring. This enables us to manage the 147 climate actions of Helsinki City more efficiently and it gives us more confidence in our progress. Climate Watch also empowers our staff to take more responsibility of the climate actions and the citizens can observe how we are advancing. The openness of the platform creates a lot of opportunities to improve collaboration in climate change mitigation.
In climate policy, means sometimes surpass the ends. Kausal Watch helps to understand the impacts, time scales and magnitudes of climate actions. It also helps to assess different policy options. Such a tool improves the possibilities for citizens, NGO’s, and researchers to follow the progress of actions in relation to the objectives. In other words, Kausal Watch supports well functioning democracy as well as thoughtful decision making.
A fair part of my job is to coordinate and communicate about our climate work in our organization and I use Kausal Watch on a weekly basis. For example, it is a handy tool when I present our actions internally, or to stakeholders. Thanks to it’s user friendly interface, Kausal Watch makes the real time monitoring of task progression possible and visualizes the status of the Carbon-neutral Helsinki Action Plan.
As a contact person for the Carbon-neutral Helsinki Action Plan, it is important for me that I can find all the tasks related to the strategic action from the same place. Kausal Watch not only eases our working group’s function but also increases the transparency of climate work and makes it's progress concrete.

Our journey started in Helsinki when our founding team members developed the Helsinki Climate Watch.
Soon other cities contacted the founding team asking for the service to be scaled up for their use as well. Kausal was born.
