The first ever South African carbon calculator developed for FTFA as part of the Carbon Standard is causing great change in the way that individuals and companies view their carbon footprint. The mere fact that a simple measurement is provided is influencing those using the calculator to reduce their carbon emissions and offset the rest. Click here to use the calculator and find out more.
Companies have been motivated to switch of lights, aircons and computers at night, reduce the number of meetings held and do these telephonically to reduce travel, rationalising their travel and more. In addition the calculator has led to the planting of over 20 000 trees for underserved communities to date. This voluntary off set is therefore benefitting many communities environmentally, economically and socially. You can input your own figures to calculate the number of trees you need to plant or you can contact FTFA if you wish a more in depth assessment and audit. You can then use the Carbon Standard logo once you have checked your figures with FTFA and agreed to the tree plantings. Measure, reduce, offset!
