Mission

By providing fact-based analyses, we help to plan walking and cycling more efficiently, as well as to better connect neighbourhoods and make them more liveable. Our motivation is to contribute to the sustainable design of our cities and regions. Our goals are also reflected in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) listed below.

Promoting healthier mobility choices

By assisting with planning decisions in favor of active mobility, i.e. walking and cycling, local communities can have access to healthy transportation modes. These modes get residents active on their way to their daily activities. Thus, having a positive impact on mental health and well-being by reducing the risks of preventable diseases such as obesity and heart problems. This accomplishes the SDG target 3.4.

Locating and targeting areas in need

In identifying areas with low accessibility to different school levels, GOAT visualizes areas of greatest need for educational facilities. With the different heatmaps available, one can judge a neighbourhood for its accessibility to schools in regards to population density, walkability, and distance. These indicators accomplish SDG's 4.2 target goals to ensure children have access to quality schools.

Planning for a sustainable city

The SDG goal which GOAT most aligns with is naturally, in the promotion of sustainable city planning. We assist with planning decisions by providing the technology to assess the accessibility of basic services and housing, active mobility and public transportation options, green and public spaces, as well coherency and connectivity between districts within and around cities. GOAT then accomplishes the target goals of 11.1, 11.2, 11.3, 11.7, and 11.a.

Promoting lower-emission mobility alternatives

As part of the climate action goal, we promote lower-emission mobility alternatives in order to create a more resilient and sustainable urban environment. Expansion and improvement of walking and cycling options can prove to reduce CO2 emissions and create a cleaner environment for the community. This fulfills the 13.1 target for strengthening resilience to climate change within countries.
