The UK version for units and emission factors is in progress.

The emission factors shown below are specific to France.

First identify the company’s activity

The calculator will ask you for various items of information about your company’s activity in 2021 and 2022, and a non-energy emission factor specific to your activity, which you should note down from the table below. (If your business has several activities, you need to use the calculator several times, see the tutorial).

We guarantee that none of the data entered will be kept, but at the end of the questionnaire you can send them to yourself by email, along with the results of the calculator, for example to enable them to be validated by a trusted third party, such as a chartered accountant or auditor.

For an offline calculation, you can also download a spreadsheet with the same formulas.

Non-energy emission factors

The Factors by branch of activity for 2021 and 2023 are for France. They were produced by La Société Nouvelle using data from the Eurostat Figaro database.
