What is/isn’t included in the footprint calculation? 

We ask you about your consumption habits and lifestyle across five categories: eating habits, housing, commuting, long-distance traveling, and shopping.

Based on your answers, we calculate how much greenhouse gas emissions this contributes to each year, measured in tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents (CO₂e). 

Public consumption, i.e., spending of tax revenues (such as schools, hospitals, and roads), is not included in your footprint. Although we can’t directly influence it through our consumption choices, we can take action and influence our politicians, form opinions, and spread knowledge and commitment.
