What is a Carbon footprint? ‡ A carbon footprint is a measure of the impact our activities have on the environment. light.that is. . and in particular climate change. from heat. power and refrigeration and all transport related emissions. ‡ Carbon footprint is a representation of the effect human activities have on the climate in terms of the total amount of greenhouse gases produced (measured in units of carbon dioxide.) ‡ A total carbon footprint/emission quantification would include energy related emissions from human activities .

12% Home .Buildings & Firnishings. 7% Effects. 5% Private Transport 10% Public Transport. 15% Home Electricity. Oil. 9% Car Manufacturing & Clothes & Personal delivery. 3% Holiday Flights.CO2 Footprint of an Individual Share of Public Services.Gas. 4% Food & Drink. 12% Financial Services. Coal . 6% . 14% House . 3% Recreation & Liesure.

G. C. H. F. E.82 * M Let us say you use N LPG cylinders a month. CO2 Emitted from power used = 0. B.9 * U .Household CO2 Calculations: Basis Four Main Sources of CO2 for a Household Petrol or Diesel for scooters and cars Electricity for household appliances CNG used for cooking and/or LPG cylinders used for cooking CO2 Emissions (kg/month) A. CO2 emitted from LPG used = 42. Let us say that you use L L/month for 2/4 wheelers.5 * N Let us say you use U units or kWh/month of power. CO2 emitted from CNG used = 1. D.35 * L Let us say you use M m3 of CNG a month. CO2 emitted from auto fuel used = 2.

9 *U) Where: L = Liters of fuel (petrol or diesel) used in a month M = Cubic Meter of natural gas used in a month N = No.5 *N) + (0.35 *L) + (1.FINAL FORMULA CO2 Emissions (kg/month) = (2. of LPG cylinders used in a month U = Units (kWh) of electricity used in a month .82 *M) + (42.

L = 200 Liters of petrol or diesel M = 100 m3 of natural gas N = 4 Cylinders of LPG U = 500 Units (kWh) ‡ CO2 Emitted by the household = 2. 2.5 *4 + 0.EXAMPLE CO2 FOOTPRINT ‡ DATA (All Values are for the same month) 1. 4.35 *200 + 1.272 kg/month Round off to 1.9 *500 = 470 + 182 + 170 + 450 = 1. .300 kg/month Accuracy = + 10%.82 *100 + 42. 3.

DVD Player from the switch Use gas or solar water heater NOT electric Buy highest efficiency A/C.CO2 Reduction TIPS 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 6) 7) Buy a fuel efficient car Walk and car pool when you can Use CNG and LPG wisely Turn off lights & fans if you leave a room Turn off TV. fridge and washer Ref: TATA Power Energy Club Web Site .
