API Reference
Estimation

Estimation

The estimation response model is returned in a variety of estimation-related endpoints.

The model contains the total amount of emissions in kgCO2e, and includes the emission factor used for the calculation.

Attribute
co2e float
Emission factor carbon dioxide equivalent.
co2e_unit string
The unit in which the co2e field is expressed.
co2e_calculation_method string
Which calculation methodology that was used for the calculation. Is always ar4, ar5 or ar6.
Learn more about calculation methods here.
co2e_calculation_origin string
Whether or not the data source or Climatiq made the calculation. Is always source or climatiq.
Learn more about calculation methods here.
emission_factor used emission factor
The emission factor that was used for the calculation.
constituent_gases constituent gases
Indicates which constituent gases the emission factor is composed of.
audit_trail audit trail flag
Indicates whether Audit trail was enabled for this request. Is one of enabled, disabled or selector.
activity_data
Indicates the parameters which were multiplied by the factor to estimate emissions.
