Klimatkollen (Climate Checker) is a Swedish open source platform visualizing climate data for citizens.
We believe that data transparency and citizen engagement are key to generating the public pressure needed to make sure local governments and companies cut emissions in line with the Paris Agreement.
As proud winners of the 2023 Google.org Impact Challenge, we will be scaling up and supercharging our citizen platform with AI, allowing us to add corporate emissions data and new features to analyze and compare climate action across local governments and companies.

Interested in taking Klimatkollen to your country?
Drop us a line if you want to hear more about us or collaborate. We are especially looking for co-funders and partner organisations in high-emitting countries, with an interest in climate data transparency and using tech and AI for good.
Klimatkollen receives support from Google.org Impact Challenge
In November 2023, Klimatkollen was one of two Swedish recipients of the Google.org Impact Challenge: Tech for Social Good.
During 2024–2026 we will build and integrate AI solutions into our platform, allowing for more and better climate data availability for citizens, increasing transparency of municipalities, governments and companies to cut emissions in line with the Paris Agreement.
A key focus of the project is to increase the public availability and transparency of corporate climate data, making it easier for citizens to know if a company is in line with the Paris Agreement, or not.
Companies are part of the problem as well as the solutions to climate change. In 2019–2020, large and medium sized Swedish companies emitted a whopping 250 million tonnes of CO2, five times the amount of our territorial emissions.
There is a big gap between what companies say and what they actually do, to bring emissions down. And it is hard for ordinary citizens to know what’s greenwashing and real action.
Our AI solutions will increase both quantity and quality of climate data freely available to citizens, driving interaction and action both on and beyond our platform.

Klimatkollen gives citizens knowledge about how Sweden’s 290 municipalities are tracking compared to the Paris Agreement. We do this by presenting essential climate data in a simple and shareable format.
Our data comes from a mix of sources, such as governmental databases, research institutions and other public sources, like Wikidata. We also enlist the help of citizens to crowdsource data.
We use communication and visualisations to make data understandable, media outreach to contribute to a fact-based climate debate, and collaboration with partner organisations to inform and engage citizens.
We work through – and with – partners across civil society, the corporate sector, media and research institutions. See some of our partners below.
