What is a Location?

Locations reflect physical or virtual facilities of your business within Cozero. Emission calculation is done at the location level. They allow you to associate emissions to a specific geo-located site or a virtual representation of a site. Examples of locations can include, but are not limited to: headquarters, production facilities, a repair shop, parts departments, purchasing offices, employment offices, warehouses, meeting places for directors, sales offices, permanent sample or display rooms, research facilities or  recreational facilities for use by employees or customers. In the Cozero Platform it is possible to create locations as part of business units.
