An analysis is only as good as the data it references.
VitalMetrics' own CEDA 5 is the most comprehensive peer-reviewed EEEIO database today.
Reliable Spend Analysis output is dependent on a high quality Environmentally Extended Economic Input Output (EEEIO) database.
Expertise, quality control, transparency, updates, support, and consistency are therefore critically important characteristics to look for to inform any data decisions your organization makes. After all, you are investing resources in the analysis, and potentially informing initiatives, interventions, and investment decisions based on those results. The reliability of the analysis, and therefore its foundational reference data, is therefore key.
Already the data of choice for numerous private and public sector applications around the world (including the U.S. Federal Govt. (GSA), Californian DGS, Google, Travis Perkins plc...) CEDA® (Comprehensive Environmental Data Archive) is an extensively peer-reviewed suite of EEEIO databases. Built by VitalMetrics' founder, Dr. Sangwon Suh, these databases underpin VitalMetrics’ spend analysis services and are designed to assist various environmental systems analyses including life cycle assessments, carbon, energy, water, waste, and toxic impacts.
