Through making our Carbon Emission Calculator available to everyone, we hope to begin mitigating and reducing the environmental impact of shipping. While there are many challenges to overcome in working toward a "greener" future, like many things, it helps to start with better data.
How it works (designed for desktop):
1.) Start at Select Route and click the icons for the beginning and end of the route
2.) Enter below the appropriate locations for each leg of the journey
3.) Choose the mode of transport for each leg of the journey
4.) Measure by either the total cargo weight or the number of TEUs
This tool calculates the CO2 emission for any route and transport mode, wheel-to-well. It's built on data from EcoTransit, including emissions factors from Clean Cargo and a GLEC approved methodology. For more on the topic of CO2 emissions and the industry, see our blog post.
