Ca' Foscari developed a Carbon Footprint Calculator, an interactive tool with which you can assess your own environmental impact measured in CO2 equivalent with the aim of incentivizing the development of a sustainability consciousness and the spread of sustainable behaviours in the Ca' Foscari community.
The first version of the Carbon Footprint Calculator was launched back in July 2011. In June 2015, the calculator has been completely redesigned, not only to make it more beautiful and functional in terms of graphics and responsiveness, but also to add elements of gamification between users and to give the opportunity of sharing their results on major social networks. The revision has been done by Fabio Pittarello, researcher of the Department of Environmental Sciences, Informatics and Statistics and Tommaso Pellegrini, a Ca' Foscari student enrolled in the master's degree in Computer Science.
Calculating your own carbon footprint is important for two reasons:
All user can calculate their carbon footprint, answering a breif survey about daily habits.
Register Ca' Foscari users can also see the previous answers, set improvement goals and race with the other Ca' Foscari communities in order to become more sustainable.
