35 000-60 000 kg
Your lifestyle footprint is higher than average. This suggests that your consumption patterns in terms of the food you eat, the energy you use in your home, the way you travel and the goods and services you purchase could be reviewed for more sustainable and efficient options that are already available today. There are plenty of opportunities to move toward a sustainable direction. Remember, every kilogramme matters!
