Carbon Footprint Measurement
There are many different ways to measure carbon footprints. None is exact. None is accepted as the definitive standard measure.
For our purposes, we used a combination of different calculators – for instance, we used a specific one for the calculation of our physical events emissions-, which produced a result for GAS cumulative emissions (2014 – 2021) of 256 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e).
There is good and bad in this result. GAS is a virtual organisation, and always has been, which is positive for our performance. On the other hand, travel has been a substantial environmental cost.
For those who are interested in knowing more about the different available calculators, we would be happy to share our experience. Please get in touch.
