Find out how your carbon footprint is generated
Some of our everyday actions also contribute to greenhouse gas emissions.
Traveling 1 km by bus generates 40 g of carbon dioxide
What produces these emissions?
Fuel consumption. Remember that the efficiency of a bus is nearly proportional to the number of people it carries. The calculation also takes into account the number of times the vehicle stops and starts, both the planned stops on the route, but also the stops caused by traffic.
What can you do to reduce them?
Public transport is more sustainable than private vehicles, and should be used wherever possible.
At BBVA, we have created the first personal carbon footprint calculator
