Here’s how you can track your carbon footprint and help keep emissions low
(Eco Business, 5 May 2020) It shouldn’t take a pandemic for us to reduce our carbon emission levels. SP Group has launched a new carbon footprint calculator that helps everyone be more aware of their personal carbon footprint and what we can all do about it.
Experts are estimating that global emissions this year will fall by 5.5 per cent of the global total in 2019—the largest ever fall in the last century—due to a drastic reduction in human activities as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
While the planetary breather is the largest ever fall in emission levels in the last century, it is still nowhere near getting us to the 2-degree Celsius target nations committed under the Paris Agreement on climate change.
But we don’t have to wait for a pandemic to take responsibility for our own carbon footprint.
In Singapore, a new carbon footprint calculator has been launched by SP Group, one of the largest energy utilities companies in Asia Pacific. The tool helps consumers build awareness of their carbon footprint and suggest ways that they can reduce it.
