EarthLab Carbon Calculations: Earth Conservation Plan (ECP)

The ECP is your personal Earth Conservation Plan; a numerically scored representation of your unique carbon profile, developed by EarthLab. The ECP is based on six categories: home, energy, work, commute, travel, and lifestyle. Each section is designed to collect member data and compile it into a single number, which generates your ECP. The ECP score is calculated by using the most current scientific data available to create an accurate representation of your current individual carbon footprint. EarthLab has constructed the ECP to allow members to track and score their progress, which helps create a greater understanding of how their score and carbon footprint compares with fellow members locally, nationally and internationally. As account holders dynamically interact with the site, EarthLab provides additional tools, tips, and educational forums to assist its users in lowering their ECP score and carbon footprint.
