Carbon Dioxide Emissions Calculator

This carbon dioxide emission calculator will help you gain an approximate idea of how many tons of carbon dioxide some of your activities generate and how many trees it would take to offset those emissions.

Planting 1 new tree in Haiti will offset 1 ton of CO2 emissions. 1 new tree can be purchased for $22 from the Lambi Fund Gift Catalog. The gift of each new tree will purchase one tree seedling, train locals on proper tree care, and nurture the tree seedling until it has become properly substantiated. Because the Lambi Fund ensures that the gift of each new tree will result in a strong and healthy tree, you can rest assured that you have offset your carbon footprint while strengthening Haitiís environment.

Step 1: Enter the appropriate figures into the quantity column — all fields are optional.

If you usually work in metric, there's also a handy conversion feature below. The number of tons of CO2 emissions will be displayed in the right hand column. At the bottom of the form, the total estimated amount of carbon dioxide emissions will be displayed as an annual and monthly figure.

Step 2: Re-enter your monthly or annual carbon emissions to calculate your exact offsetting needs.

Take your total annual/monthly tons of carbon dioxide emissions as calculated above and enter below. Calculations are based on 1 ton of CO2 offset by planting 1 new tree in Haiti. 1 ton of CO2 = 1 new tree = $22/tree.
