extractive Industries Transparency. IESR conducts own research to base its
advocacy on and understands itself as a think-tank sharing innovative ideas
with civil society and decision makers in government and the business world.

IESR has developed an online carbon calculator on its website. Visitors get
access to an online tool where they fill in the electronic devices they use
at home and see straight away the carbon emissions arising from e.g.
watching 2 hours television. The calculator also shows emissions related to
transport, garbage or drinking of bottler water. The visitors get a tool at
hand where they see how a change of lifestyle or a reduction of using
electric devices leads to measurable carbon emission reductions.

carbon calculator who could also calculate emissions for whole houses or
small and medium sized businesses. Much research is needed to generate

emissions from electricity generated in other countries)
