Carbon Calculator

A carbon footprint calculator is a great way to discover how our daily activities, such as driving to work and eating meat, can add up to creating a large carbon footprint through the greenhouse gas emissions they produce. Your footprint can vary depending on where you live, lifestyle choices, and habits. Below you’ll find a carbon calculator that will estimate your footprint and compare your results to the country average and the world average. Take a moment to look at the breakdown of the carbon footprint to understand the portions of your life that produce the most CO2.

Although collective action that encourages policy change is critical to meaningful climate action, individual action is a more immediate option to reduce one’s carbon footprint and a gateway for action at a larger scale. This carbon calculator by the US EPA is a helpful resource as it provides ideas of small changes an individual can make in their life to reduce their carbon footprint, as well as provides an estimate of how much CO2 you would save by making this change.
