Carbon Calculators

It is the primarily focus of this carbon calculator to let people purchase carbon offsets related to the emissions released from air travel. Just type in your origin location and destination, and find out which sustainable programs around the world you can support with a simple donation

WWF’s mission is to stop the degradation of the planet’s natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature. While this carbon calculator is primarily targeted at UK residents and companies – It is by far the best calculator we came across, based on aesthetics, ease of use and straight forward messaging.

Carbonzero helps you measure, manage and mitigate your climate impact while supporting projects that protect nature and give back to local communities.
