Hi Jack,

Carbonpedia <http://www.ecodes.org/carbonpedia/acceso-a-la-base-de-datos>is
a database on Carbonfootprint for companies, products and events. So
companies, if it's recorded the data of several years you can see if there
is a CO2 reduction or not related with this company.
In the coming moths we want to improve the visibility of this information.
