Environmental footprint calculator
The Footprint calculator is based on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology. This tool allows users (students, teachers, personnel, families) to assess their performance in terms of the main environmental impacts.
Environmental footprint calculator aims at creating a tool that enable the schools and students to self-assess their performance by identifying critical points and environmental potential of improvement. For this purpose, two different tools are provided according to the user role:
General User: school and home
- calculate environmental footprint also including home consumption
School System: school and students
- calculate environmental footprint associated to leaning/teaching activities and mobility behavior
The following questionnaire can be used by schools as a support to fill the information required by the Environmental Footprint tool.
The Retrofitting toolkit provides a set of functionalities to assess the performance of buildings. More particularly it comprises:
- A building energy performance tool that evaluates the energy savings achieved by the implementation of various retrofitting measures
- Visualization tools to assist in designing energy-saving retrofitting measures in buildings
Sustainability Interventions Evaluation
The tool provides sustainability indexes based on a multi-criteria methodology to assess the environmental performance of schools and their community. The tool focuses on seven environmental sectors:
