Many individuals ask what they can do to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere. Measuring your individual, household or travel emissions helps you to target your reduction efforts on your largest sources of emissions.
Travellers and tourists
Travelling (particularly air travel) for reasons such as holidays and business trips, can generate significant unavoidable greenhouse gas emissions. We offer the tools to calculate and minimise your travel emissions. If you've had a holiday in New Zealand there is an option to include the accommodation and activities that you enjoyed during your visit.
There is a calculator available for schools as an educational tool for both teachers and students to learn about their climate change impacts and opportunities to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.
Leaders' climate change challenge
The carboNZero team has challenged New Zealand's political and business leaders, ambassadors and celebrities to measure their personal household greenhouse gas emissions or carbon footprints. We believe that leaders "walking the talk" will inspire others to take action.
