Use our handy carbon calculator to find out the size of your footprint- and how to cut it.
Here at EDF, we’re on a shared journey to help Britain achieve net zero. So let’s go on that journey together – not just at work, but at home as well.
It's win, win for the planet and your wallet.
We’ve created this ‘myFootprint’ calculator to guide you on that journey. You can find out the size of your carbon footprint – and what you can do to cut it. So you’re helping to protect the environment and you’re saving a bit of money along the way!
Before you start
The survey will take about 15 minutes to complete. You’ll need your energy and water bills to hand. You’ll also
need your bank statements so you can refer to it for your monthly spend.
Due to us spending more time at home during lockdown, we recommend you use bills from 2019 so the results
will reflect your regular lifestyle.
And please let us know how to get in touch with you. We’ll send your results direct to your inbox - so you can refer to them whenever you want.
Entering your name and email address is optional.
We’ll only use your name and email address to send your results to you and to know if you’ve completed this quiz more than once.
We’ll aggregate and anonymise all results. And we’ll delete all personal data after 12 months.
When you’re ready, just click Next on the top or bottom right!
Welcome to the quiz! Let’s start by looking at your energy and water use.
By taking small actions to save energy, together we can make a big difference. So which of these actions do you normally take?
Now let’s have a look at some of your spending habits. If you’re unsure about any of the answers, just make an educated guess!
Remember, we're looking at your spending habits for the year 2019.
Food and drink
How much did you and your household spend on food and drink
in a typical month?
Waste and Recycling
Now it’s time to look at your vehicles. How many vehicles, including hired cars, have you used in the last year – either as a passenger or a driver?
Choose the correct vehicle type, fuel and size (if you drive a van then use the medium or large car option).
Make sure you only include the miles that you’re responsible for. Include the miles for your commute - but exclude any work trips from your calcuations. That way, we can give you a more accurate carbon footprint.
And remember, this is for the calendar year 2019.
Great news – we’re on the last section! You’re a few questions away from finding out your carbon footprint.
This section is all about holidays in the last year. Now we know that holidays are a bit uncertain at the moment. We’re hoping that things go back to normal soon.
In the meantime, think about any holidays or long journeys you’ve taken by plane, train, cruise ship or bus in the last year. Only include personal trips – not work trips. You can tell us about each journey by clicking ‘Add a new journey’. If you drove to your holiday destination, you can skip this section. Your miles will have been covered by the last section.
