In this article, you will find out how to calculate your ecological footprint.
If you are currently reading this, it is probably because you have an interest in knowing what your ecological footprint is.
First of all, congratulations for that first step! With small actions and daily changes, we can reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Your ecological footprint is the amount of carbon dioxide you emit each year. It actually corresponds to the impact you have on the climate scale and will allow you to identify changes that you could implement to your daily life and lifestyle to reduce that impact.
Calculate my carbon footprint as an individual
The calculation of your ecological footprint is based on your lifestyle and consumption habits. You might be surprised by how much goes into the calculations as many of your daily actions affect the environment.
Among others, there are:
- The means of transport you use and the trips made locally or when you travel abroad
- Your energy consumption and the type (natural gas, propane, fuel oil, gasoline, diesel)
- Your use of technology (cell, laptop, desktop, tablet and even printers)
- Your consumption of meat, eggs and dairy products, frozen meals and commercial cereals

Calculate my ecological footprint as a company
The calculation of a company’s carbon footprint is pretty much done on the same basis as for individuals, with a few differences.
The elements of the calculation for individuals, except for the consumption of food, apply.
Then we add:
- The nature of your business (type of business, type of production and quantity)
- The number of employees in your business
- Type and volume of export

Calculate my carbon footprint as a political organization
Whether you are a candidate for election, an established politician or represent a political party, you can also calculate your carbon footprint.
Obviously, the calculation process is almost identical to a company. We only add the quantity of posters and electoral signs produced each year since these are of great importance in the calculation of the carbon footprint.

Calculate the carbon footprint of your event
Are you organizing an event and want it to have the smallest possible impact on our environment? Your event also has its own ecological footprint.
To calculate the latter, precise elements are used:
- The number of guests
- The type of transport used by the guests (car, train, plane)
- The mileage traveled by each guest to attend the event

What is the next step after calculating my carbon footprint?
Now that you know your carbon footprint, you will be able to identify the elements in your daily life that can be modified in order to reduce your impact on the climate balance.
Also, you will now be able to become carbon neutral.
Indeed, by knowing exactly the amount of carbon dioxide you emit, you can offset these emissions.
No matter where you start, remember that every little action counts and that together we can do great things for our planet!
