PRESS RELEASE: A NEW WAY TO MEASURE AND OFFSET CARBON EMISSIONS
27 June 2016
The online calculator is powered by measurement experts Carbon Analytics and provides users with a tool to calculate their carbon emissions. Users can then immediately offset these carbon emissions through ClimateCare’s award winning portfolio of climate and sustainable development projects.
The calculator helps you measure the impact of specific activities like travel, attending an event, or energy use. For example, the image below shows a calculation of the carbon impact of a return economy flight from London Heathrow to New York – a distance of over 6800 miles. It shows that each passenger is responsible for 1.54 tonnes of CO2 emissions, and gives the opportunity to offset this for £11.53.
To request a copy of the ClimateCare Carbon Calculator to embed in your own website simply email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the team on +44(0)1865 591000.
