The 2030 Calculator is the first tool that allows brands to quickly and easily quantify the carbon footprint of the products they manufacture, using a common universal scoring system. Making these calculations had previously been a costly effort only open to bigger brands. 2030 Calculator levels the playing field by giving small, local challenger brands a shared tool for creating awareness and transparency.
