STEP 1: Estimating the level of your greenhouse gas emissions

This estimator will provide you with an indication of your approximate level of carbon emissions - low - moderate - high

This is an indicator only and in an effort to simplify the process we do not provide an exact measure of the tonnes of carbon you may be responsible for emitting. The main purpose is to give you a credible view of your current emissions contributions and to enable you to focus on areas of action that are most likely to reduce your emissions contributions in the future.

That way you will know what you're signing up for when you sign the MyKyoto Protocol!

1. How is the electricity in your home sourced? Green energy source

Very active
Moderately active
Not very active at all
Not applicable as I do not spend time in a workplace

The answers you have given trigger a points total that places you in the category of either low, moderate or high regarding your contributions to greenhouse gas emissions. The best possible score is 7 (extremely low emissions) and the worst possible score is 100 (extremely high emissions)
