Check out the Upottery Parish Carbon Footprint.
In 2020, a group of parishes, including Upottery helped the University of Exeter and the Centre for Sustainable Energy in Bristol to test a carbon footprint calculator they have developed for communities to understand their carbon footprint. Importantly, this calculator, called IMPACT calculates not only the carbon we all create from activities within the parish, it also calculates the carbon created by things that we bring into the parish, be that food from Africa or TV sets from Taiwan and presents the information in simple graphic charts. IMPACT also calculates carbon footprints for other local authority areas, so as well as our parish and every other parish in the UK, you can also view the carbon footprint for East Devon and Devon County. The website provides full instructions on how to use it and all the data used to calculate the footprint graphics is available in spreadsheet form under the "Using Impact" tab. There is also an "Act!" tab which suggests what we can all do to reduce our carbon footpront. Please have a look and get to know how all of us contribute to global warming.
