Calculating your personal carbon footprint

CAfS is delighted to announce that we have a new carbon footprint calculator that is available to any resident in Cumbria or Lancashire. The calculator is free to use and can be found on our website. It has been funded by South Lakeland District Council. 

Carbon footprinting is one of the most useful tools we have in our fight for the planet as it allows us to find out what scale of change we each need to make as individuals and organisations. Knowing what target we are aiming for gives us all the chance to make plans and pledges that will actually be effective in securing a future for our homes and families.

This event will explain why it is useful to calculate the carbon footprint of your lifestyle and will talk you through how to use the calculator.  

We will be hearing from: 

  • Molly Hogg, from Cumbria Action for Sustainability, who has been working with our developer, Carbon Footprint Ltd, to create our version of their calculator.  

  • Chris Hodgson, from Ambleside Action for a Future, has worked alongside Molly on the calculator’s development. Together, we are promoting carbon footprinting in Ambleside as part of the Ambleside to Zero project.  

  • Roe Baker, from CAfS, who is working on the ENW funded Community Energy start up project supporting Alston Moor, Keswick and Halton with Aughton.

We are also hosting the same event for our business version of the calculator on Tuesday 9th March at 10am. The two calculators are very similar, so if you can’t attend this event, feel free to join the other one. Alternatively, email us for a link to the recording of this event.
