Transition Redhill Personal Carbon Footprint Monitoring Project

Transition Redhill is launching a personal carbon footprint monitoring scheme which TR members, colleagues and friends are invited to join.

Your footprint is a measure of how much carbon dioxide CO2 in tons per year is emitted as a direct result of those activities that are both under your direct control and that can be simply and accurately measured. We include these activities:

  • home heating,
  • home electricity use,
  • non-business road and air travel.

To take part you need to record your gas and electricity meter readings at the start and end of the year, record or estimate your annual car fuel consumption, and record any non-business flights. Further details on how to do this are given in the project rules.

Download the rules here.

The aim of the project is of course to help you to reduce your personal impact on the climate. Measuring the impact makes it much easier to focus your efforts on the most effective practicable steps to take.

The scheme came into effect on January 1st 2012 but you may join at any time. If you want to join contact the administrator Derek Smith at derek.redhill@gmail.com.
