HOW DID WE CALCULATE THE KG/CO2 RELATED TO MOBILITY?

The carbon footprint calculation formula is not a creation of the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge. It is an independently developed tool designed to help understand how carbon is generated through attending the Bilbao BBK Live Festival.

The formula used for the carbon footprint calculation is as follows: [(Km x CO2/Km) x (x1/x2)1 + [(1/2/3) x (C02/option1 + CO2/option2)] = Total CO2

In the mentioned formula:

“Km” refers to the distance the user travels from their origin point to the event.

“CO2/Km” refers to the type of vehicle used and its efficiency in terms of fuel consumption.

“x1” and “x2” indicate whether the trip is one-way or includes a return.

“1/2/3” refers to the number of days the user will attend the festival.

“CO2/option1” and “CO2/option2” refer to the means of transportation used to get to and from the festival venue.

“Total CO2” refers to the carbon footprint generated by attending the event. *

*The “Total CO2” result is provided as a comparison to the average annual carbon footprint of a Spanish citizen.

- Information Sources

The information needed for the carbon footprint calculation is obtained from two main sources. The first consists of recognized and reliable sources, such as the MITECO Emission Factors document, the RACE, and data from the European Environment Agency (EEA).

The second source is the information provided by users of the CO2 calculator. This data includes the distance traveled, the type of vehicle used, the number of days the user will attend the festival, and the means of transport selected for travel to and from the festival venue. All this data is voluntarily provided by the user and is used exclusively for the carbon footprint calculation.

- Limitation of Liability

Despite efforts to ensure the accuracy of the formula, the results provided by it should be considered estimates and not exact calculations. Users are responsible for the interpretation and use of the results obtained.

- Use of the Formula

The carbon footprint calculation formula is provided for personal and non-commercial use. Modification, distribution, or use for profit is not allowed without prior written consent from the creators.

- Changes to Terms and Conditions

We reserve the right to update or modify these terms and conditions at any time without prior notice. Such modification will take effect immediately upon publication on this page. By using the carbon footprint calculation formula, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions. If you do not agree with any of the terms, we advise you not to use our formula.
