Carbon calculator

Manchester helps carbon footprint calculator to support environmental sustainability within industry.

The ability to measure the carbon footprint of industrial activity is a crucial step in mitigating climate change effects. However, the complexity of industrial supply chains makes this a challenging task.

An internationally leading group in carbon footprinting and sustainability formed a partnership with over 30 companies and organisations across different sectors to develop a tool to specifically meet industry requirements. By working closely with potential end-users it was possible to build extensive data sets and engage in industry-led concept testing. The resultant product was CCaLC, an award-winning carbon footprinting tool that can be tailored for different industrial sectors and applications.
