Want to better understand your impact?
Check out these user-friendly calculators for estimating environmental impacts
Many tenant office spaces in commercial buildings are master-metered. This means that they do not have a way to track exactly how much energy they are using in their space. This calculator will help you estimate your usage based on a number of factors.
An estimated 28% of all greenhouse gases come from the energy we use to get from point A to point B. This set of calculators will help you understand the environmental and economic impacts of your commute.
There are environmental impacts associated with nearly every decision you make each day from how you get to and from work to what you choose to eat. Find out how much you are contributing to global emissions and how you can do better!
Up to 18% of emissions in the U.S. are estimated to be related to residential energy consumption. Find out how much you are contributing by estimating your home's carbon footprint.
The implications of greenhouse gas emissions are often difficult to wrap your head around. This calculator makes it easy to translate impacts into more tangible equivalencies.
There are many benefits to increasing and improving green space in urban areas. I-Tree helps communities better manage and evaluate those benefits.
Recycling is the best way to dispose of electronics, or e-waste, after the end of their useful life. This calculator will help you determine the amount of toxics you keep out of the environment by recycling your computers, phones, and printers.
It is difficult to manage and better environmental practices in your office without first measuring your current performance. Use one of these three calculators to find out how well you are already doing and make a plan for doing even better.
When you send something to the landfill, the environmental impact goes beyond the land that it occupies. Reducing the waste that you can and recycling materials that can be recycled can also prevent activity that leads to increased emissions as well, and the EPA's Waste Reduction Model (WARM) can help you quantify these impacts.
Especially in office environments, paper production and disposal have a significant environmental impact. Use the paper calculator to measure your impacts and make more environmentally-conscious decisions about your paper use.
