Abstract

Disclosed is a method by which environmental sensors (e.g. sensors for traffic congestion, CO2 emission, and other pollution) monitor conditions induced by construction. Using this invention, a service may leverage said sensor data to transmit a signal to an environmental amelioration function such as a carbon-offset provider. Thus, this invention enables offsetting of construction's environmental "costs" that are not typically measured or offset.
