Carbon Calculator, Industry initiative
ELSA Carbon Calculator is an open-access web calculator developed by designer Benedetta Crippa as part of PhD candidate Lina Persson’s artistic research project at Stockholm University of the Arts. The calculator is created in cooperation with the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and is aimed at reducing the carbon footprint of movie productions and aligning them with the Paris Agreement. The calculator helps film students and professionals to measure CO2 emissions of their movie productions using the latest data visualisation technology for the web. It has been nominated for Design S – Swedish Design Awards, a comprehensive design award, in the “Digital Products and Services” category, competing against multi-million dollar companies Kivra and EY Doberman.
