CALCULATION OF CARBON FOOTPRİNT

House: Unknown because I don’t know what is the energy
consumption of my family house nor my dormitory.

Flights: 0.74 tonnes: 6 x Economy class direct return flight
from IST to ADB (from Sabiha Gökçen to Adnan Menderes).

Cars and Motorbikes: Don’t have any of them. Bus and Rail: 0.01 tonnes: 270 km travelled by coach.
0.03 tonnes: 180 km travelled by taxi.

Secondary:
Food Preferences: I eat a mix of red and white meat. Organic Produce: Some of the food I buy or grow is organic. In Season Food: I try to buy or grow some in season food. Imported foods and goods: I prefer to buy goods produced closer to home. Fashion: I buy new clothes when I need them. Packaging: I try to buy things with little packaging. Furniture and Electronics: I mostly buy new but generally keep things for more than 5 years. Recycling: Some of my waste is recycled. Recreation: I occasionally go out to places like movies, bars or restaurants. Car Manifacture: I don’t own a car.

Total Secondary Footprint: 4. Well I am trying to do my best at them. 0. I don’t even have a car. so I am not the worst case either. Most of the footprint comes from secondaries. And maybe I can try to use public transportation more often. Umut Çağırgan 20100704014 .74 tonnes isn’t a negligible quantity. They probably have double or triple quantity of footprint which caused by flights. it is clear. Well as a social human being I won’t choose not to go movies and bars either. I don’t buy clothes which I don’t need and I only buy new electronics when current one gets old and it don’t function that good anymore. flights are an important fact in my results. They are not very bright results. Personal Opinions: Well when looked to the graphics.Finance and Other Services: I use the standard range of financial services. but when we look to total it seems like it is not enough. I think. But there are lots of people which flies more often or flies to other countries too. my total carbon footprint is one and a half of Turkey’s average. And Turkey’s average is a bit less than one and a half of the world’s target average too. I think if I were eating more vegetables(I am eating some but not often as meat so I chose the meat food preference) and recycling more wastes. I can try to go to Izmir with bus to instead of plane too.31 tonnes. My Total Carbon Footprint: 5.09 tonnes. results would be much lower.
