Carbon Footprint Calculation is a part of UIAA´s commitment to tackling climate change and reducing its own CO2 emissions.

Implemented in

  • Europe and Central Asia

Sectors of activity
Environmental Services, Scientific Research, Development and Innovation, Tourism

Type of initiative
Research, Analysis, Assessment


To “measure and understand” UIAA´s carbon footprint in order to set targets to reduce overall climate impact. Knowing how to define these targets requires first measuring and understanding how its travel and activities contribute to CO2 emissions, requiring a ‘baseline’ to compare progress over time. The initial task is to establish and report on an indicative baseline and continue to gather data to monitor how emissions trend over time.

Impact and Results

The UIAA can also use the report data to start seeing where and which activities create biggest impact and then suggest practical means to consider reducing this impact.
