What is the Cambridge Carbon Map Project?

Cambridge Carbon Map is an environmental organisation aiming to promote decarbonisation across Cambridgeshire. We partner with institutions and enterprises across Cambridge, placing them onto our digital map, which celebrates and informs others of the climate actions. We want to make it easier for organisations to learn from, evaluate and inspire each other’s actions, empowering long term sustainable change.

Cambridge Carbon Map will be:

  • An open-source public map of carbon emissions for the city of Cambridge, U.K.
  • Accessible to anyone with a mobile phone
  • Presenting emissions data from local organisations in an engaging way
  • Motivating climate action from the ground up

Watch our video to see how our team of passionate volunteers came together to build the foundation of the Cambridge Carbon Map last summer!

Groups collaborating with Cambridge Carbon Map include: Cambridge University Department of Psychiatry, the Cambridge City Council, the Cambridge County Council, King’s College Cambridge, St Edmund’s College Cambridge, The Leys school, TEGA (Trinity Ethical and Green Affairs), the Cambridge GEECS (Cambridge Group for Ethics in Engineering and Computer Science). Talks with Cambridge Zero and the University of Cambridge are currently ongoing.
