The Clean Air Calculator
The value of greenery is not always easily communicated in an engaging way, but the Clean Air Calculator’s goal is to change that.
The Clean Air Calculator is a tool to measure the environmental benefits of urban green spaces. It is an engaging, interactive way to tell the story of the benefits of plants.
The calculator uses the Esri geographic information system (GIS) to allow the user to search the address of a property, and then, with a few mouse clicks, trace around the grass, trees and shrubs on the land. With those fields traced and tallied up, the Clean Air Calculator then estimates the environmental benefits of that urban green space.
Plants are carbon sinks, they play an important role in sustaining life on earth, adjusting carbon balance and alleviating the rise of atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration. Carbon Sequestration is the long-term removal or capture of the gas from the atmosphere to slow or reverse atmospheric pollution and mitigate or reverse the effects of climate change.
But cutting carbon emissions is not enough!
Greenery, ranging from trees, turfgrass to shrubs and perennials in urban areas, contributes to mitigating climate change impacts via carbon sequestration and offers several co-benefits in cities.
While every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of this calculator, the results should be used as a guide only. This calculator is not to be used as a substitute for formal professional advice, nor should it be relied upon as the sole source of information relating to its content.
