We all want to make a positive contribution towards climate change, but it can be hard to know where to start. Sometimes it just seems too complex – we recycle, eat less meat, use the car less, but what difference do our lifestyle decisions really make?

The Lifestyle Calculator is an easy to use tool to show our carbon footprint – a simple and fast assessment of our activities that provides a snapshot of our impact on the planet. When we understand the impact of our decisions, it becomes much easier to commit to reducing it.

The Lifestyle Calculator was developed to allow any individual to calculate their carbon footprint regardless of where they live in the world. The data is drawn from publicly available sources, chosen for their proven credibility and robustness.

In 10 minutes you can learn how your lifestyle impacts the planet.

The Lifestyle Calculator might be powerful, but it couldn’t be simpler to use. It takes just 10 minutes to answer a straightforward series of questions covering a common range of activities – how we travel, what we eat, where we live.

In just 10 minutes you’ll have an insight into how your lifestyle choices impact the planet – some positive, some negative, allowing you to make simple, climate-smart decisions that benefit everyone.

Methodology

The Lifestyle Calculator was developed to offer a standardized methodology to allow any individual to calculate their carbon footprint, regardless of where they live in the world. The data is drawn from publicly available sources, published by specialized research institutions chosen for their proven credibility and robustness. To ensure transparency of our calculations and assumptions, and to encourage collaboration around possible improvements, the full handbook is available.

Lifestyle Calculator

We developed the Lifestyle Calculator to fill a gap. While there’s plenty of data to measure the impact of different activities, until now it’s been hard for consumers to access that data in one place.

The Lifestyle Calculator was designed to offer consumers an intuitive, fast way to measure their impact – and hopefully make lifestyle changes based upon their findings. These changes may seem small, but they all add up to make a big difference.
