We have developed a carbon calculator which is simple to use and will enable you to track your carbon footprint from year to year.
The calculator covers everything you and your household consume including domestic energy use, transport, food and stuff. Domestic energy use and car use are based on accurate readings. As well as accounting for petrol and diesel cars, plugin-in cars are also handled. The food section’s calculation is based on both your diet type and expenditure. Spending on goods is based on expenditure, with a fixed amount for services.
The calculator allows you to store your results for each year, and sets an annual target for each of the following years.
After a period of use for the spreadsheet based calculator, we will introduce a web application which will reflect feedback you give us on this calculator.
You can download the calculator and read more about it here.
