Welcome to the McDonald Hopkins Carbon Footprint Calculator for Businesses!
We hope you find this helpful to make an initial determination of the carbon footprint of your business.
Establishing and mitigating your company’s actual carbon footprint can enable your company to save money by:
- Monetizing and selling carbon credits on the carbon credit market or through individual transactions
- Drive savings by reducing your company’s carbon footprint through improved energy efficiency
- Prepare your company to meet the demands of impending carbon regulations
McDonald Hopkins has created this tool to provide you with the opportunity to approximate the amount of carbon dioxide annually emitted as a result of your organization's activities. The calculator can account for electricity and natural gas usage, vehicle usage, and air travel.
To ensure that these calculations are as accurate as possible, we have compiled the most up-to-date and credible carbon dioxide emissions data. The sources for such data as conversion factors, average electricity usage of commercial buildings, and grid-intensity figures are provided by the US Energy Information Administration, the US Environmental Protection Agency, and other internationally recognized sources.
Please note that this estimate of your footprint, measured in metric tons of carbon dioxide, will not be certified by McDonald Hopkins or any other organization. Although this calculator has the potential to be a reasonable approximation of an organization's footprint, McDonald Hopkins cannot provide any statement attesting to the completeness or accuracy of the final footprint. However, McDonald Hopkins can provide your organization with information and resources regarding establishing your organization’s carbon footprint, reducing your carbon footprint by taking advantage of energy efficiency incentives, and selling your organization’s carbon credits on open markets and to private investors.
