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