Did you ever wonder what reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 1 million metric tons means in everyday terms? The US EPA's greenhouse gas equivalencies calculator can help you understand just that, translating abstract measurements into concrete terms you can understand, such as “equivalent to avoiding the carbon dioxide emissions of more than 208,000 cars annually.” This calculator may be useful in communicating your greenhouse gas reduction strategy, reduction targets, or other initiatives aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
The Nature Conservancy’s carbon footprint calculator measures your impact on our climate. The calculator estimates how many tons of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases your choices create each year.
The US EPA offers three tools designed to help small businesses develop a corporate wide inventory and establish a plan to ensure GHG data consistency as they track progress towards reaching an emissions reduction goal.
