Overview of the Open Footprint™ (OFP) Forum and Development of the Data Model Standard Version 1.0 Snapshot 1

Day 3 (Wednesday, January 31)


The Open Footprint™ (OFP) Forum is playing a critical role in advancing the adoption of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions data standards through the development of an open source standard data model, reference Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), and an open-source reference implementation, tools, and accompanying documentation.


While the Forum started its work focused on GHG emissions, the focus has now broadened to include all emissions. These efforts are essential to provide companies with a common language for communicating their emissions data, which allows for easier tracking, comparison, and benchmarking across industries.


To learn more about the upcoming 2024 planned deliverables from the OFP Forum, please join members of the Forum and additional members of The Open Group Community, January 29 - January 31, 2024.
