Impact Community Carbon Calculator
The Impact Tool is an estimator of a community’s carbon footprint that works for parishes wards, district councils and unitary authorities.
It draws on more than 30 datasets to estimate the total amount of greenhouse gases produced directly and indirectly as a result of everyday human activities in the given locality – heating homes, using electricity, transport, producing and distributing food, disposing of waste, etc.
It presents this information in a visually engaging way that is easy to interpret and easy to share.
Impact has been designed to help you and your community to access, analyse and act on your community’s carbon footprint and to give you a better idea of where to target your efforts for the greatest impact in tackling the climate emergency.
