Impact - New Parish Carbon Footprint Tool


Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE), as part of their Climate Emergency Support Programme, has launched a community-scale carbon footprint tool - Impact. The aim of the tool is to provide small communities data on their carbon emissions, allowing them to identify where they can make a significant dent in local emissions.

Currently, the tool is focused on Parish Council level. Once you enter your parish name, the tool will display the carbon footprint for your community.

You can view your community’s carbon footprint in two ways:

  • A Territorial Footprint  
    Emissions that arise from activities within your parish boundary, including road and rail travel, industrial and commercial emissions, agriculture, and household energy use.
  • A Consumption Footprint
    Household energy use but also considers what we buy (including services) and eat, much of which is imported.

They are working on improving the tool and they would welcome your thoughts. If you would like to contribute, please email
