Carbon Footprint at our Headquarters, Kanakagiri
The Carbon footprint was calculated by our field Team, in December 2010. A popular Carbon calculator was used to calculate the same at Samuha headquarters, Kanakagiri. The information was collected from the households and is detailed below :
 
Energy Details
Monthly Electricity Bill: Rs.4000
Fuel used for cooking: LPG.
Firewood is the chief source of fuel.Since the carbon calculator did not incorporate fuel consumption in this form, it was assumed that one LPG cylinder would last for 45 days for a household of 4 members.
Life of LPG cylinder: 4 days. On the basis of the above assumption, it can be concluded that for a household of 40 members one LPG cylinder would last for around 4.5 days.Since the carbon calculator did not have the provision to enter decimal figures,it has been rounded off to 4 days.

Food Details
Milk consumed in HH per week: 45 litres
At the campus, every individual is served three cups in a day. So, for the total household, around 120 cups (=40*3) of tea is prepared on a daily basis and thereby, 840 cups(=120*7) in a week.
According to canteen experts, around 25 cups of tea can be prepared from 1 liter of milk. On that basis, approximately 34 liters(=840/25) of milk is consumed in the form of tea.
Also, 1.6 liters of milk is used every day to prepare buttermilk which is equivalent to 11.2 liters per week. Hence, the total milk consumed is approximately 45 liters(=34+11.2) in a week.
No. of times mutton/beef/pork is eaten per week: 0
Neither of the above food items are consumed at the campus. We had decided to include chicken and eggs in the above category to be unbiased. However, these items are consumed only once in a month, which is 0.25 times a week. Such a figure is not accepted by the present carbon calculator. We chose to be fair here.
No. of times rice is eaten per week: 20
Rice is the staple diet of this region and is hence, a necessary item in the menu for each meal during the day.
 
Private Vehicle Details
Is privately owned vehicle used? : Yes
Do you usually travel alone? : No
What is known more accurately? : Fuel expense compared to travel time.
Weekly Expense on fuel: Rs.3275 on petrol 13 vehicles (10 motorcycles+3 mopeds) have been issued to the campus people for official purposes. The average mileage produced by these two wheelers is 45km/lt. On an average, each vehicle consumes around 4 liters of petrol per week. This is equivalent to 52 liters (=13*4) for 13 vehicles.
At present rate of petrol which is Rs.63/lt, the total expense comes out to be Rs.3275.
 
The carbon footprint for the campus was generated, which is 4.67 tonnes of co2 equivalent per annum.
This is 1.2 times the world average and 2.9 times the Indian average. Private vehicles account for 84% of this.
