Household Emissions

The emission factor of electricity strongly depends on the source. To calculate your footprint, find out what kind of electricity you use. It is currently common practice to assign the CO2 emission factor for green electricity imported from abroad to GOs imported from abroad, because this import does not contribute to the domestic greening of electricity production.

  • For gray power we assume an average of 0.45kg CO2e per kWh in this “Tank To Wheel” calculation.
  • For green electricity 0kg. 
  • For gray gas, we assume an average of 1.79 kg CO2e per m³ in this “Tank To Wheel” calculation.
  • For green gas 0kg. 

Numbers after the decimal point are rounded.

Car

Car emissions

The size of your car is based on weight. 

  • For a small car we assume a maximum of 950 kg for petrol and 1050 kg for diesel cars.
  • For a medium-sized car, we assume 950-1350 kg for petrol and 1050-1450 kg for diesel cars.
  • For a large car, we assume more than 1350 kg for petrol and 1450 kg for diesel cars.


When calculating an electric car, the emission for the consumer "Tank To Wheel" is 0 kg.
The “Well To Wheel” calculation (including the generation of (grey) electricity) is 0.104kg CO2e per kilometer driven. 
Emissions are calculated based on distance traveled per vehicle. Numbers after the decimal point are rounded.

Bus

Public Transport Emissions

Emissions are calculated based on distance traveled per person.

To get an average picture of traveling by public transport from A to B without specifying a means of transport, choose General PT. This is a rough average of the emissions per km in all public transport.

When calculating electric vehicles, the “Tank To Wheel” emissions for the consumer often amount to zero. Numbers after the decimal point are rounded.

Emissions from short flights (<700km) are about 40% more than longer flights.

Emissions are calculated based on distance traveled per person.

Compensation

With Nature For Future you can easily & efficiently offset your emissions.
NFF is a certified non-profit foundation and uses reliable sources for our data calculations.
Our projects follow Fair Trade practices and transparent methods to offset your emissions.

Taking into account that the jungle in Costa Rica is dense and diverse, we use an average absorption of 30 kg absorbed CO₂ per tree per year for our calculations. [source1][source2][source3][source4] 
No carbon credit rights can be derived or traded with the certificates issued by NFF. The costs of offsetting CO₂ via NFF are based on our own calculations and our own methods for reforestation.

We always assume CO₂e in the calculations of the number of tonnes of CO₂.
CO₂e is an abbreviation for “carbon dioxide equivalents”. It is a way of comparing the emissions of various greenhouse gases based on their 'global warming potential' or GWP. 
Methane (CH4) for example, is a stronger greenhouse gas (up to 25 times more) compared to CO₂. 
By calculating with CO₂e values, Nature For Future also takes into account the emissions of other greenhouse gases. [source1] [source2]
