The Carbon Trust Energy and Carbon Conversions

Your Simple carbon footprint calculator..

We have used the conversion data issued by DEFRA but have tried to make it a simple but accurate calculator. All on one page and at the end you will have a good idea of your CO2 impact.

Start by entering the number of persons in your calculation. Then enter the information in the boxes that 'apply to you' and your 'energy type' etc. Work down the page an click the 'Submit' button at the bottom. To recalculate press 'clear' and start again.

To calculate your flights, car or train transport separately, fill in the numbers of persons and then the relevant information and click Submit. It's as easy as that!
