THE

CLIMATE CALCULATOR

Use the Climate Calculator to choose the climate policies you would like to see in place to help the UK hit its target for greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.

Existing policies are likely to get us half way from where we are now to where we need to be. The government knows more is needed – but what?

The Climate Calculator lets you answer this question, based on the impact of different policies, not just on emissions, but also on household budgets, jobs and health. These impacts are based on a mass of research – details on the site (we have not reported on every impact or alternative, only key ones).

The impacts of the policies include costs. But bear in mind that not taking action would cost even more: according to the Bank of England, five times as much for the country as a whole by 2050.

We will publish an analysis of the choices users make (you can request a copy on the final page) to show the UK government how the public want the UK to meet its 2030 climate target – or even how to beat it.

Who we are

The Climate Calculator is a joint initiative by WWF, the world's leading independent conservation organisation, and Demos, a leading cross-party think tank.

It is sponsored by the National Grid, the UK's largest utility involved in transmission of electricity and gas, and ScottishPower, the UK's first integrated energy company to generate 100% green electricity.
