In 2019 we started to measure our carbon footprint using an online calculator. We urged residents to use the calculator on the WWF website: https://footprint.wwf.org.uk and send in their personal data to us so we could calculate a village average. We had 41 responses. Values ranged from 6.7 tonnes per year to 17.4 with an average of 11.7. Judging from these figures, we are not doing especially well! We didn’t repeat the exercise in 2020 but now in 2021 we intend to contact those 41 residents who responded and ask them to repeat the exercise. We’re interested to see what impact lockdown had and is having on our emissions.
We need to reach close to zero by 2030!
