Find out how your household contributes to greenhouse gas emissions, and discover some of the ways you can reduce your carbon footprint.

The Oregon Carbon Calculator estimates all direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions from your transportation, household energy use, and consumption of food, goods and services. Compare your household's carbon footprint to households of similar size and income.

 

The Oregon Carbon Calculator is made possible through Oregon DEQ's support of the CoolClimate Network, a program of the University of California, Berkeley, and through financial support by the California Air Resources Board and the CoolCalifornia.org partnership. Oregon DEQ selected this calculator for its approach and depth in calculating human impacts to climate change.
