CO2‑footprint

CO2 parameters in the Envirometer

Milieubarometer always calculates your CO2 footprint using current CO2 emission factors. This way you always have a reliable basis for your reports. Ideal as a user, so you don’t have to pay attention to it yourself.

The units are converted into CO2 emissions using CO2 emission factors. These CO2 factors are determined and determined nationally. All CO2 footprint reports therefore have the same scientific basis. The CO2 emission factors are in line with the requirements of the CO2 Performance Ladder and the GHG protocol.

List of current CO2 factors

Would you like to know which factors the Environmental Barometer takes into account? The list of all current factors for this year can be found below. These values ​​are now used in the Environmental Barometer to calculate the CO2 footprints.

Factors from previous years are also still in use. If you now calculate a CO2 footprint for 2023, the CO2 factors from 2023 will be used.

Expertise in emission factors

The list of emission factors is updated every year. This is done by a broad panel of experts in collaboration with the central government. The Stimular Foundation is part of this. Our advisors have thorough knowledge of CO2 emissions and real conversion factors. This knowledge is reflected in the Environmental Barometer and all our advice.

When and how are the CO2-parameters changed?

In the list below you can find an overview of all changes:
