Of course, this tool offers you an estimate. It is obviously impossible to calculate an individual’s greenhouse gas emissions to the nearest gram. But the objective of this module is above all to raise awareness of the major items that increase the weight of your carbon footprint. Certain gestures, for example whether or not to drink bottled water, are marginal compared to the 2 tonnes of CO2 generated by a long-haul flight. However, every action counts.
And then, surprise, you have not even begun to answer the questions that you already have a little more than two tons imposed on you. How is this possible, especially since the objective is precisely not to exceed two tons? This is due to the fact that we have assigned a fixed base by default for various goods and services as well as for the HoReCa sector. This illustrates that, beyond “small gestures for the planet”, structural changes are necessary to act on global warming. Note that the share of CO2 emissions related to public services was not taken into account in the final result.
In summary, the objective of this tool is above all to stimulate reflection: in what world do we live today? And what choices are we prepared to make to limit global warming in the years to come? What are the priority actions to take? What are the actions that have an impact, certainly symbolic, but ultimately marginal on the total? With all this information in mind, we invite you to dive straight into our calculator.
