Carbon footprint of events
Collect and record the data concerning the use of energy, water, paper, waste production, catering and transport solutions (business trips of employees, audience commute, deliveries) associated with your event. These details will be helpful in establishing your event’s carbon footprint. To measure environmental impact, you can use a special calculator, some of which are available online for free. For instance, using Carbon Footprint, which is partly available in Polish, you can calculate carbon footprint associated with travel. In order to do this, you need information on the means of transportation, distance covered and the number of passengers. Julie’s Bicycle has designed a special carbon footprint calculator dedicated to the creative industries – Creative Green Tools. It makes it possible to not only assess environmental impact of individual events with their organisational burden, but also compare readings, in order to be able to reduce the negative environmental impact more effectively in the future.
