· I haven't re-checked it in the last five-to-ten years, but I'm living at the same level now; my overall Ecological Footprint (carbon is one of four factors) was 83 percent of the sustainable EF. I can find the four components if asked.

We're measuring our carbon footprints at work and then compete against each other by who can reduce it the most and who's got the lowest impact. We recently started to include food and accommodation. Unfortunately, (international) flights increase the footprint immensely, so we try to at least offset our flights (it's hard to stop flying completely, especially with family all around the world).

I used futurefit to find out. My main action is cutting down on dairy.

Long term sustainable level is 2000kg per year per person world wide. A single flight to Europe causes the equivalent of 5000kg of emissions. Therefore, tourism, and mass immigration where people regularly fly "home" are not going to be able to be maintained if anti warming targets are to be met. See climate scientists who don't fly for more.

Future fit is great for this and to show areas to target! My main area is travel through international flights...
