Climate Change is recognised as the greatest long-term threat to the Great Barrier Reef.
The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority is committed to enhancing the long-term resilience and sustainability of the Great Barrier Reef and the tourism industry which relies on it.
To improve sustainability you must reduce your CO2-e emissions. The first step is to measure your 'carbon footprint'.
Try it out!
This Emissions Calculator has been developed for Marine Park tourism operators to allow easy calculation of their carbon footprint. Just create your account to get started. Once you have your unique ID, you can come back to your information anytime you wish. You can also track your emissions year-over-year.
There are 8,159,092 t of greenhouse emissions total, entered by the 182 operators participating for Financial Year Ending June 2012. The breakdown of these emissions is shown in the graphs below:
CO2-e (Carbon dioxide equivalency) - Carbon dioxide is one of many greenhouse gases which are released into the atmosphere through natural and human activity. A carbon dioxide equivalency (CO2-e) has been calculated for all of the different greenhouse gases. CO2-e factors allow an easy and accurate way of assessing environmental impact from emissions.
