Easy choices to reduce your carbon dioxide footprint
The Julia 2030 project has developed several calculators to allow the residents of the Helsinki region to track their carbon dioxide emissions.
A carbon dioxide calculator has been developed for the public transport's Jouney planner, presenting the greenhouse gas emissions for each route option. In comparison, the calculator also indicates the emissions generated by using a passenger car for the same distance. The carbon dioxide counter also has a chocolate counter calculating the amount of calories that would be consumed by walking or biking the same distance. The calculator visualises the total number of calories by indicating how much chocolate it corresponds to.
Jälki, the weekday traffic carbon dioxide counter, tells the user the carbon dioxide emissions from the trips made during weekday travel (Mon-Fri). To calculate the emissions from your weekday travel, estimate the number of kilometres travelled by each mode of transport or enter your departure and destination address in the search boxes.
By using Konsta, the domestic waste calculator, you can estimate the amount of waste generated in your household. Konsta tells you the quantity of greenhouse gas emissions generated by your waste during handling. The most effective means of reducing the quantity of emissions is to reduce the amount of generated waste and sort biodegradable waste.
