Environmental Impact Calculators
This impact calculator is particularly pertinent to green building because it provides specific
suggestions regarding how to make your home more environmentally friendly and shows you how
much energy and carbon emissions you would save if you carried out the suggested projects.
This quiz estimates the area of land and ocean required to support your consumption
of food, goods, services, housing, and energy and to assimilate your wastes. Your
footprint is broken down into four categories: carbon (home energy use and transportation),
food, housing, and goods and services. Your footprint is also broken down into four
ecosystem types: cropland, pastureland, forestland, and marine fisheries.
