Online carbon footprinting tools are great for helping individuals, businesses and others identify where and how they add most carbon to the atmosphere and, therefore, where and how they can go about reducing their carbon footprint. Some are very complicated and you would benefit from help from an experienced footprinter. Others are simpler and you can have a go on your own.
Zero Carbon Shropshire will be providing support and resources to help people understand and use carbon footprinting but until that is available you could check out the tools below.
