Detailed record

Here you have the option to enter all flights individually. For a simple calculation, you only need the departure and destination airports, the rest is calculated automatically. However, you can also enter more detailed information. The booking class in particular has a major impact on how great an effect your flight has on the climate.


The carbon footprint is calculated from the combustion of fuels and the upstream processes. For air travel, the additional greenhouse effect caused by so-called non-CO2 effects such as water vapour and cirrus clouds is also taken into account with a factor of 3.
You can offset your air travel, i.e. the emissions caused by air travel are compensated elsewhere by climate protection projects. The Carbon Calculator evaluates this as a carbon handprint.

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.


Personal changes in the next 5 years are reflected in your short term scenario.


A more climate-friendly society and your personal changes then lead to a medium-term scenario covering the next 10 to 15 years.

Germany 2050

Your acceptance of long-term climate protection measures and the corresponding policies then lead to a projected German average value for the year 2050.
