MyClimate is a Swiss-based carbon offsetting company which has a fun to use GHG calculator. It doesn’t have the functionality of the paid tools, but it is very good for a simple but quite accurate measurement.

It is most suitable for indoor events held in a single venue, based in Europe, and where the event owns all the GHGs and does not want to distinguish between stakeholder groups.

If you want a quick and quite precise measurement, the MyClimate tool is terrific.

co2.myclimate.org/en/event_calculators/new | www.myclimate.org/en


EMISSIONS FACTORS: Draws on international emissions factors for electricity, and European for others. Where European in not available, globally valid factors are used.
ONE USE: You must complete the data completely. If you navigate away from the page, you will lose the data.
EMPIRICAL: Offers estimates using empirical data (event information and historic data from previous events using the tool). This is possible for all aspects of the tool.
UPLIFT: Because statistical values and well-thought-out assumptions are sometimes used in individual calculations, an uncertainty margin of 20 per cent is added to the emissions result.
REPORTING: Produces a graph and table which you must download or screenshot immediately

Event Information

COUNTRY: Choose destination country and it will apply appropriate emissions factors for grid electricity and hotel nights
VENUE: Size of heated or cooled area – used to estimate energy if data is not available.
PARTICIPANTS: Number of participants. Uses ‘participants’ rather than attendees, and so we assume it means all involved with the event including contractors, performers etc
STAFF: Number of staff involved with the event, though it is not clear how this influences GHG calculations.
EVENT DAYS: Number of days to allow for empirical (estimated) data where specific data is not available.

ENERGY: Can choose between actual kWh or esimated on venue configuration using empirical data
RENEWABLE ENERGY: Asks if this is used, and assumes 100%
ENERGY: Does not allow for fuel use in mobile power generators
TRAVEL: Can choose between cars or public transport, number of people per mode and distance, or to use empirical values
FLIGHTS: Percentage of people, predefined distance group – short haul (up to 3 hr), medium haul (3-6 hrs), long-haul (more than 6hr)
TRAVEL: Does not distinguish between crew/staff/participants, versus event attendees
ACCOMMODATION: Room nights, hotel star rating
ACCOMMODATION: Does not distinguish between crew/staff/participants, versus event attendees
TRANSPORT: Distance, tonne, and choose only between truck, van or car
TRANSPORT: You can only enter transport once and only choose one mode
MATERIALS: Limited material choices
F&B: Number of meals
F&B: MEAL TYPE: Number of vegetarian meals
F&B: BEVERAGES: Soft drinks/water, tea/coffee, beer/wine/spirits
WASTE: By weight, residual waste and recyclable waste
WATER: Consumption
WASTE WATER: generated
MHE: Plant, machinery, equipment
DIGITAL: Websites, search engine queries, servers, virtual events
