Understand your carbon footprint at-a-glance
The emission factor dashboard is a dynamic, easy-to-read chart of your emission factors. It lets you analyse your carbon footprint at a glance, and you can drill down into the details to find out more about where your emissions come from.
Click on Communicate + Emission Factors. This will display a treemap chart of your emission factors. You can see the details for each emission factor, such as activity data or scopes, by clicking on it.
You can change the way you view your emission factor data, using the customise button. Instantly see which emission factor has the most data points, for example, or which of your scopes it contributes to.
The colour scale tool replaces the default colours with a gradient. The bigger the emission, for example, the darker the shade, which means you can see right away where your heaviest emissions are.

Mapping emissions and tasks just got a whole lot easier
Now you can add branches (that allow you to easily assign and track emissions) at the click of a button. You just select the template you need and Sweep will generate a ready-made branch with the structure and emissions all there.
Let’s say you have an office. Just click on Edit + Templates and select Office from the dropdown menu. Then decide which scopes you’d like to measure (if you’re new to Sweep or carbon footprinting, we’d recommend choosing scopes 1&2 at first. Scope 3 can come later, when you’ve got the hang of things).
You can add, move or delete things if you like, or you can just go ahead and use it the way it is. All you need to do is assign it to someone and start measuring.
More flexible ways to analyse and report your data
You can now assign tags to any group in your tree. This comes in handy when you want to track emissions or create reports across different branches of your tree.
You’ll find this feature in the Settings tab in the sidebar panel. Scroll down to Tags and select one from the dropdown menu, or create a new one.
You can use tags to filter the data you see in Dashboard and Reports in the Communicate🎙 section. Just click on the Tag menu at the top, and choose a tag to filter the data.
Put your branches where you want them to grow
Another crowd pleaser: new groups now always appear on the right side of your branch, and you can place them where you like.
Go to the settings tab in the sidebar panel and scroll down to the branches section. Move the branches by grabbing the menu icon and simply dragging it up or down.
Don’t forget to click publish to make the changes available to everyone in your Sweep account.
