Carbon Calculator Webinar Recording

A couple of weeks ago, Motorsport UK and their partners at Carnstone sat down to talk to Clubs and Organisers about the new Carbon Calculator. In the webinar, the team at Carnstone walked through the carbon calculator covering the basics, answering questions about how to use the calculator and how it can be included in events. 

Using the Carbon Calculator tool is of interest to the forestry bodies in Scotland, and as access agreements are being renewed we are seeing a mandatory requirement as dictated by the sustainability appendixes.

In case you missed the webinar, you can watch back and learn all about how your club can start using this free tool.

If you have any questions you want to ask about the carbon calculator and how to use it for your events, contact the Sustainability Team at sustainability@motorsportuk.org

Club Toolkit Resources

We would also like to take this opportunity to highlight some of the resources that can be used to help with the Calculator. For example, there is a Travel Survey Template and a guide to becoming a more sustainable Club.

He went on his first rally at the age of 5 when his uncle was marshalling the Cropton Forest stage on the Lombard RAC Rally. That was in the days of Roger Clark and the all-conquering Escorts. The sounds and smells of rally cars have never lost their appeal. As an adult, working on an ambulance crew covering Cadwell Park in the mid 90s, he frequently encountered drivers who had come to an abrupt stop somewhat sooner than they had anticipated. Jon is a licensed rescue team member and Motorsport UK Trainer. He sits on Motorsport UK's Training Working Group and their Rescue and Recovery Working Group, as well as being a member of Motorsport UK's national training team for Safeguarding.
