Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator
Calculate your greenhouse gas emissions with this online Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator
The Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator is designed to enable public and private sector organizations and individuals to quickly and easily translate greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions from units that are typically used to report reductions (e.g., metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent) into terms that are easier to conceptualize (e.g., equivalent number of cars not driven for one year).
Applications of this calculator might include developing a greenhouse gas reduction strategy, communicating reduction targets to the public or stakeholders, and supporting other initiatives aimed at reducing GHG emissions.
There are two approaches: for those who have already estimated the quantity of emission reductions (e.g., metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent) -- and for those whose starting point for conversion calculation is (a) gallons of gasoline, (b) kilowatt-hours of electricity, or (c) number of cars and light trucks (rather than quantity of greenhouse gas)
