FOOTPRINTS
in THE SAND

To reach Net Zero by 2030 we will need to reduce our carbon footprints by at least 8% per year.  Knowing where we are now, helps us plan our personal and community journeys to Net Zero. 

Join the Bigbury Carbon Savers Club to find out how to do this in easy steps that make life more enjoyable, meaningful and will save money too.

BIGBURY CARBON FOOTPRINT

The Bigbury Carbon Footprint is 18.8 tons CO2e per person per year.  The average UK footprint is about 15 tons.  The average in Sub-Saharan Africa is 0.8 tons.  Our emissions affects the existence of others and Life on Earth. 

HOW DOES BIGBURY COMPARE? 

The Bigbury Carbon Footprint is higher than the average footprint in South Hams and in the UK due to over reliance on oil-fired energy, overseas flights and lack of shared or public transport . 

WHAT IS YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT?

The Bigbury Carbon Footprint is made up of 450 households,  seven farms covering 1,00 acres and a few local businesses.  You can use the free Carbon Savvy Footprint calculator to measure and update your calculations as you move towards net zero.  Find out the small steps you can take.

HOW CAN FARMS MEASURE CARBON EMISSIONS?

Farm Net Zero works with farmers throughout the UK to provide expert, unbiased advice on how to reduce a farms carbon footprint.  Farmers undertake field based research and benefit from learning through farm tours to talk to real farmers about their profitability and carbon emissions.

A free farm carbon footprint tool helps to record and guide progress towards net zero
