API description

 

About the API:

Our Carbon Footprint Calculator API is a powerful tool that allows you to easily calculate the carbon footprint of any product or service. The API can be integrated with any application and supports multiple metrics, making it easy to track and reduce environmental impact.

The API uses data and algorithms to calculate the carbon footprint of products or services based on various factors such as energy consumption, transportation, and materials used. It can be used for a wide range of products, including food, clothing, electronics, and more.

The API can be integrated into e-commerce websites, supply chain management systems, and other applications to provide customers with information about the environmental impact of products. This can help to promote sustainable consumption, and support organizations in achieving carbon reduction targets.

In addition, the API can be used to track and monitor the carbon footprint of an organization's operations, such as energy consumption and transportation, which can help to identify areas for improvement and track progress over time.

Overall, our Carbon Footprint Calculator API is a valuable tool for businesses and organizations looking to track and reduce their environmental impact. It's easy to integrate, and supports multiple

 

What this API receives and what your API provides (input/output)?

Call any endpoint of your choice, declare the emissions, and receive the calculation right away. 

What are the most common uses cases of this API?

  1. E-commerce: Use the API to integrate carbon footprint calculations into e-commerce websites, allowing customers to see the environmental impact of products before making a purchase.

  2. Supply chain management: Use the API to track and monitor the carbon footprint of products throughout the supply chain, from sourcing to delivery, to identify areas for improvement and reduce environmental impact.

  3. Sustainability reporting: Use the API to calculate the carbon footprint of an organization's operations, such as energy consumption and transportation, to support sustainability reporting and disclosure.

  4. Carbon offsetting: Use the API to calculate the carbon footprint of products or services, in order to offset the emissions by investing in carbon-reduction projects, or purchasing carbon credits.

  5. Consumer research: Use the API to conduct research on the carbon footprint of different products, as a way to understand consumer behavior and preferences towards sustainable products.

  6. Product development: Use the API to calculate the carbon footprint of new product designs, and optimize them to reduce environmental impact before they are produced.



Are there any limitations to your plans?

Besides API call limitations per month, there are no other limitations.

Return the official air quality health index (1 to 10) bases on key parameters.The national AQHI is based on three-hour average concentrations of ground-level ozone (O3), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), and fine particulate matter (PM2.5). O3 and NO2 are measured in parts per billion (ppb) while PM2.5 is measured in micrograms per cubic metre (ug/m3).

The API requires inputs such as energy consumption, transportation details, and materials used for the product or service. These inputs help calculate the carbon footprint accurately.

The API supports multiple metrics for calculating the carbon footprint, including energy consumption (kWh), transportation distance (kilometers), and materials used (e.g., weight in kilograms). These metrics are used to generate precise calculations.

Yes, the API can be easily integrated into e-commerce websites, supply chain management systems, or any other applications. It provides customers with information about the environmental impact of products, helping promote sustainable consumption and support organizations in achieving carbon reduction targets.

Yes, the API can track and monitor an organization's carbon footprint by capturing data on energy consumption, transportation, and other relevant factors. This data helps identify areas for improvement and allows organizations to track progress in reducing their environmental impact.

Zyla API Hub is, in other words, an API MarketPlace. An all-in-one solution for your developing needs. You will be accessing our extended list of APIs with only your user. Also, you won't need to worry about storing API keys, only one API key for all our products is needed.

Prices are listed in USD. We accept all major debit and credit cards. Our payment system uses the latest security technology and is powered by Stripe, one of the world’s most reliable payment companies. If you have any trouble with paying by card, just contact us at [email protected]

Sometimes depending on the bank's fraud protection settings, a bank will decline the validation charge we make when we attempt to be sure a card is valid.

Prices are based on a recurring monthly subscription depending on the plan selected — plus overage fees applied when a developer exceeds a plan’s quota limits. In this example, you'll see the base plan amount as well as a quota limit of API requests. Be sure to notice the overage fee because you will be charged for each additional request.

Zyla API Hub works on a recurring monthly subscription system. Your billing cycle will start the day you purchase one of the paid plans, and it will renew the same day of the next month. So be aware to cancel your subscription beforehand if you want to avoid future charges.

Just go to the pricing page of that API and select the plan that you want to upgrade to. You will only be charged the full amount of that plan, but you will be enjoying the features that the plan offers right away.
