There are lots of Carbon Footprint Calculators out there – and after a fair amount of research looking through many of them, the CAPS team have decided to go for the one put together by Carbon Savvy.
[Please note that all calculators are on the external Carbon Savvy website.]
From their home page:

Whether you find numbers a bit daunting, or are a bit of a geek and love them, you’ll find one of our three calculators is right up your street.
The taster calculator takes just 1 minute and the popular calculator 5 minutes, both are based on info that most people have in their heads. The full calculator requires having your fuel bills to hand and takes around 45 minutes, giving you the satisfaction of picking up the smallest of changes you make in your lifestyle.
And from the Town Council’s website:
