Calculate Your Carbon Footprint

WHAT IS MY CARBON FOOTPRINT?

Most action in our daily lives consumes energy and produces carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Whether we are driving our cars, heating or cooling our homes, or catching a flight, we are producing emissions. Your carbon footprint is the sum of all CO2 emissions that were produced by your activities for a specific occasion or over a period of time.

TRACKING YOUR PROGRESS

By creating your green account you can keep track of they ways in which you are emitting carbon dioxide and make adjustments to become more "green" by designing your individual green movement.

Calculate Vehicle Emissions
Please select the options below to describe your vehicle. If you know or can estimate the number of miles driven please enter the amount you would like to offset.
