Measure your carbon footprint
Measure your carbon footprint to see if you are on track for the UK's target of 10.5 tonnes per head per year - that's an equivalent to charging 1,158,700 smart phones.
The overall carbon footprint of the UK shows that residential properties contribute 15% of emissions.
When looking exclusively at Wales the percentage of residential contributions to the carbon footprint is 9.6%. This is because there are fewer people living in Wales and the UK percentage is the average for all 4 home nations.
A carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gases that are generated by our actions. The average carbon footprint for a household in UK is 12.6 tonnes. To have the best chance of avoiding 2 degree C rise in global temperatures, the average carbon footprint per year needs to drop under 2 tonnes by 2050.
