My carbon balance

In your carbon balance different areas of your life from heating to miscellaneous consumption are being considered. It not only tells you your personal carbon footprint, but also the avoidance you achieved as well as a carbon handprint, which quantifies your positive impact on the climate by enabling others to avoid emissions.

Carbon footprints in comparison

carbon footprint: 10.78 t
German average: 10.78 t

carbon footprint

The personal carbon footprint shows how many tonnes of CO2 equivalents are emitted due to your current lifestyle.

In addition to CO2, the greenhouse gases methane and nitrous oxide are taken into account, which are converted into CO2 equivalents with the corresponding climate impact. The additional non-CO2-related climate impact of flying is also taken into account.

In order to assess your carbon footprint, the German average is always displayed for comparison.
