Google Maps has rolled out a new feature that now enables the users to access the carbon footprint of all of a city’s buildings – and the carbon print of all the car trips, bus and subway rides.

Named ‘The Environmental Insights Explorer’, an online tool introduced, is designed to help cities identify and come up with a plan to reduce emissions, looking at their carbon footprint.

By using this new feature, more than 9000 cities can actually benefit, who have initiated projects to cut emissions after signing the Paris Agreement.

The new feature, created by Google in partnership with the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy, can actually trace a large part of carbon emissions in cities.
