Calculating your Carbon

Please read about carbon footprints if you have not done so already

If you want to know how your personal footprint compares to the UK average of 11 tonnes CO2e, you can find out in a couple of minutes by running the UBoC Carbon Calculator.

Don’t worry if some questions are not framed perfectly for you. Just pick the option that seems closest – your results should come out about right. If you want to allow for other people, run the calculator for each person then add the totals together. For other adults, answer as you would for yourself. For children just include things like flights and holidays where they clearly have a footprint that’s additional to yours.

Please be sure to answer every question you see, and always enter a zero on any that don’t apply, especially in Q1.
If you don’t get a total at the end – you missed one!
Click each tab in the menu and look for questions now printed in red.
