Carbon Calculators

Our specially designed carbon calculators are tailored to the national context of our ten particating countries. If your school is not based in one of these countries you can still participate and obtain a carbon footprint but the data you provide will be used alongside the UK carbon data to provide an indicative footprint.

This footprint can help your school to gain an understanding of the amount of CO2 it releases in a year. But as it is based on UK assumptions this information should be treated with care and as a guidance only.

There are three easy stages to obtaining your Carbon footprint. The information you provide at each stage will help the tool to refine your footprint and give you more accuracy.

Your first step is to register with this website, answer some simple questions and get your first footprint. No need to do any research, or obtain any information as all the questions should be easily answered by anyone in the school. To complete stages 2 and 3, you may need to ‘snoop’ around the school and ask for information from your head teacher or facilities manager.

Once you have completed stage 2 of your calculator you will have access to action planning tools that will help your school to understand what can be done to reduce your schools CO2 emissions. This action planning tool once available can also be used in 'safe mode' as a teaching resource.
