About Our Calculator

Carbon Positive Australia’s own Carbon Footprint Calculator has taken a Silver Award in the category ‘Sustainability, Environment, and Climate Special Projects’.

The entry was made by the team at Anthologie who partnered with our organisation in the technological development of the calculator. The in-house team development was led by Carbon Positive Australia team members Jess Fitzgerald (Commercial & Carbon Project Coordinator), Christine O’Brien (Head of Marketing & Design), Josie Crosby (IT Manager) and Louise Tarrier (CEO).

“We wanted to demystify the world of carbon by creating a tool that is intuitive, accurate and transparent. We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved and hope it empowers Australian households to understand and reduce their carbon footprint.”

With the announcement of these awards, we would like to take the opportunity to thank the individuals and businesses that have supported our campaign. Our carbon footprint calculator had 14,000 + visits in the first ten weeks of going live, with over 800 tonnes of carbon offset, and it couldn’t have happened without them.
