Our journey so far

There’s always more to achieve, but we’re already making progress in our journey to reduce the impact we have on the environment. Our 2019/2020 improvements:

Calculate my carbon footprint for train, plane and car travel

Compare different ways to travel with our handy carbon footprint calculator. All you have to do is enter your start and destination details or simply tell us how many miles you want to go. We’ll then show you the environmental impact for planes, trains and automobiles.

The calculations are based on:

Car = average petrol car 0.28052 kgCO2e/mile / 1.6 (average loading for a car DfT statistic dataset vehicle mileage and occupancy) = 0.175325 kgCO2e/pass mile

Train = National Rail 0.0594490196 kgCO2e/pass mile

Plane = Domestic flight with radiative forcing 0.393161762 kgCO2e/ pass mile
