CARBON CALCULATOR

INSTRUCTIONS

You can use this calculator to calculate your "carbon footprint" - your CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions over a 12 month period.

You can make a quick calculation by estimating your answers, or you can choose a more accurate calculation by referring to your actual bills and usage data.

  1. Enter your household data in section 1. Household usage is shared between the members of your household.
  2. Enter your personal lifestyle and travel data in section 2. Personal usage applies to you as an individual.
  3. The results will be calculated and updated dynamically as you enter your data.
