Let's quickly figure out an estimate of your greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions per case today.

Use Double Green's GHG calculator to identify your current environmental impact or input a prior year's data to set a baseline for your sustainability targets. Use the future column to check your sustainability progress or utilize it to evaluate the impact of a sustainability program, process, or solution you are considering.

Depending on your operations, sustainability support and options you might be aware of items bound for the landfill that under ideal circumstances are recyclable. Most of your waste is going to fall under line 1. The next future value column can assist you with calculating the cost of inaction (not recycling an item) and the next tab, Recycling can be used to quantify the effects of recycling these items.

  1. How many tons of mixed waste, on average are hauled away in your dumpster per month bound for the landfill?
  2. On average, how many tons of cardboard per month do you send to the landfill?
