Carbon footprint

Constant news on climate change and the changes we need to do in our lives in order to adapt to the warming of the planet, have prompted many people to re-think their consumer habits and what individuals can do to prevent climate change. At IHME we have approached the issue by charting how harmful carbon dioxide our work produces.

IHME Helsinki office used an online tool produced by Julie´s Bicycle to calculate the carbon footprint of its basic operations for August 2018. That footprint was found to be 220,7 CO₂e kg, which the report produced by the service says is an extremely good result. The tool, designed especially for use by cultural organizations, bases its carbon-foorprint calculation on energy and water used, waste produced, and travelling and getting around. IHME Helsinki also wants to encourage other cultural-secort actors to check the environmental impacts of their operations and to share tips on reducing them.
