2.7 Information sharing and transparency

Has the project demonstrated the necessary level of transparency around processes, plans, and results such that reviewers and the public can effectively evaluate them?

Our principles

  • Data sharing builds trust, encourages action, and furthers our collective knowledge towards the goal of mitigating climate change.

  • To further collective knowledge, Running Tide commits to sharing our research results, and ensuring that data and outcomes are transparent and available for the public and decision makers.

  • Deployment-specific documentation will be public or available upon request.

  • Supplier attestations are required for raw material sources, as well as records of material source locations and transportation details.

How we demonstrate these principles

  • Running Tide has shared, and will continue to share, data from our research projects. As mentioned above, we have established a quarterly data sharing and consultation process with relevant government agencies in Iceland. We are launching a Running Tide document library to provide a centralized location for our scientific work, system design, and .

  • All documentation Running Tide provides to the Icelandic Government is available upon request.

  • As detailed in our Responsible Sourcing Strategy, Running Tide suppliers are required to provide attestations specific to materials sources as proof of baseline conditions, particularly in regards to the alternative end-state of residue inputs. This includes records of the origin of material sources, transportation details, and any associated emissions, which are available upon request. As part of our Supplier Code of Conduct, Running Tide also holds the “right to audit” suppliers or inspect suppliers’ facilities to confirm compliance.

  • Running Tide will host any credits generated in a publicly viewable database, providing a single source of truth and maintaining a record that will live in perpetuity.

Running Tide engaged with our Scientific Advisory Board and a range of external parties such as NOAA around the best external location to share data from our ongoing research projects, and we are open to suggestions for any appropriate sites that are widely utilized and respected within the scientific and policy communities.
