How is my footprint calculated?

To calculate a baseline footprint, which we use for our monthly plans and one-time contributions we use multiple data sets:

  • Data from the World Bank which reports CO2 and other greenhouse emissions that occur in your country.
  • Data from the Global Carbon Project which reports emissions embedded in imports from overseas. We combine these imported emissions with the country of residence emissions.

On top of that we add an extra 10% to ensure that each member is becoming climate positive by offsetting more than their footprint.
