Low carbon living calculator launched ( - 20180420)

Written by

The Environment Bureau launched the Low Carbon Living Calculator today to promote lifestyle changes to combat climate change.

The online calculator will help the public assess their individual carbon emissions in the past year for clothing, food, living and travel.

On a designated website, it asks 14 simple multiple choice questions which can usually be completed within five minutes.

Using information from electricity, water and fuel bills, the calculator will estimate users' individual carbon emissions based on their habits.

It also offers low carbon living tips on behavioural changes needed to lead a greener lifestyle.

People can share their results with family and friends using social media.
