Esri India launches Carbon Footprint Awareness App: Here are the details


Leading Geographic Information System (GIS) solutions provider Esri India has announced the launch of an app –‘Carbon Jagruk’ or ‘CarbonAware’– in Hindi and English to enhance awareness about carbon footprint at an individual level.
The apps enable citizens to estimate and reduce their carbon footprint. The application is simple to use and requires no login or download. It collects no personal information of the user. The app can be accessed by clicking here: https://carbonaware.in
The announcement is part of Esri India to promote a sustainable lifestyle through carbon-conscious behavior and choices. This app will help in estimating the causes of a higher carbon footprint at the community level. Esri India plans to share this data with local administrations so that they can take measures to educate citizens.
Every time we travel by car, take a flight, or use an electrical appliance we leave a trail of gases that build up in the atmosphere and contribute to global warming. These emissions are forcing our climate to change for the worse. The CarbonAware App is an initiative by Esri India to help each one of us to understand how much carbon footprint we are creating at an individual level and what we can do to reduce it.
To appreciate the user’s efforts in taking part in this campaign and understand their carbon footprint, the app also gives the option to download a certificate at the end. To limit global warming to 1.5 degree C, which was the central goal of the Paris Agreement, a recent IPCC report has insisted that global greenhouse gas emissions would have to be reduced by 43 percent by 2030. Esri India’s CarbonAware App is a concrete step towards raising awareness about our carbon footprint and making each one of us understand how we can contribute towards India’s commitment to be ‘Net-Zero’ by 2070.
