Calculate Your Carbon Footprint

The Carbon Footprint Calculator is a popular tool for quantifying the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions you generate in your daily life.

The link below takes you to a simple tool provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to help individuals quantify their greenhouse gas footprint. This is an important first step in understanding how you contribute to greenhouse gas emissions in your daily life and in identifying areas where you can reduce emissions.

Once you have completed the initial inventory, visit the Energy Program website or contact the City Energy Program Specialist for ideas on how to reduce your greenhouse gas emissions.
