More and more businesses and consumers are making buying decisions based on supplier’s carbon emissions.
So how much carbon do I emit as a freelance copywriter working from home?
I’ve calculated my carbon output using the UK government’s calculator at http://carboncalculator.direct.gov.uk. Here are the results:
as an individual I emit 2.24 tonnes of carbon per year
the national UK average is 4.46 tonnes a year
my target is 1.79 tonnes per year
The site provides a personal plan to help me reduce my carbon footprint by at least 0.45 tonnes and hit my target.
I also plan to invest in five carbon credits, worth 5 tonnes of carbon. This’ll let me mitigate the damage I cause even further by supporting green energy initiatives.
