CREDS – Place-Based Carbon Calculator (PBCC) launch
Tuesday 29th June @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
About this event
This event marks the launch of our Place-Based Carbon Calculator (PBCC). The PBCC is a free tool that shows the carbon footprint of every neighbourhood in England. The map allows you to zoom into any street and see a detailed breakdown of the carbon footprint, uptake of low carbon technologies, and much more. The tool also provides an overview report for each Local Authority and access to new datasets (such as MOT data) that are free to download and use.
The main part of the tool is an interactive map of England. Clicking on any of the neighbourhoods shown on the map will bring up a local report card. The report card contains more information on how the carbon footprints were calculated, as well as comparisons with other areas. The report card also gives useful information about contributing factors such as how well insulated homes are or how far the average person drives per year.
The purpose of the tool is to provide a resource for local government and community organisations to help them address their carbon reduction goals.
