Many people want to behave in a sustainable way – but often there is a lack of information on how to do this. Lifestyle calculators can help, because they show how many resources are being consumed or how many greenhouse gas emissions the own lifestyle is responsible for.
The United Nations One Planet Network has compiled an overview of the lifestyle calculators currently available: “How can people better understand their environmental impacts: An Introduction to lifestyle calculators“. The scientifically based paper also shows how consumption decisions are made in the first place and how they can become sustainable consumption decisions.
