Greenhouse gas equivalencies calculator

Did you ever wonder what reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 1 million metric tons means in everyday terms?

The greenhouse gas equivalencies calculator can help you understand just that, translating abstract measurements into concrete terms you can understand, such as 'equivalent to avoiding the carbon dioxide emissions of 183 000 cars annually.'

This calculator, produced by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, may be useful in communicating your greenhouse gas reduction strategy, reduction targets, or other initiatives aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
