Step 4 of 5
With information about you such as your age, sex and weight as well as your activity level, the Carbon Calculator estimates your daily calory intake. You can then answer the four questions on the right on how you meet your calorific requirement.
carbon footprint: Examining CO2-equivalents is particularly important for the food sector due to the large quantities of the greenhouse gases methane and nitrous oxide getting emitted from agriculture in addition to carbon from food processing and transport.
You can achieve an avoidance of greenhouse gases if you eat a predominantly vegetarian or vegan diet and pay attention to regional and seasonal origin and organic farming.
My carbon scenario
In your carbon scenario you can now look to the future. Answer questions about changes you're planning, new habits and even investments. On the basis of your carbon balance today the projections are carried out, up to what the German average would be in 2050.
Your carbon scenario picks up where you've left off in your carbon balance.
Short-termPersonal changes in the next 5 years are reflected in your short term scenario.
Medium-termA more climate-friendly society and your personal changes then lead to a medium-term scenario covering the next 10 to 15 years.
Germany 2050Your acceptance of long-term climate protection measures and the corresponding policies then lead to a projected German average value for the year 2050.
Save the current status of your calculation if you want to edit it later, send it to friends or post it in a social network. The data is available for you to retrieve for a period of 18 months. If you do not retrieve the data during this period, it will be deleted.
