CCaLC LITE is a simplified version of the CCaLC carbon footprinting tool that enables quick and easy estimations of carbon footprints of everyday products. Its main aim is to help find out what we as consumers can do to reduce our own carbon footprints.

Through a number of examples included within the tool, users can estimate the carbon footprints of different food products, packaging, etc. For example, by selecting different food ingredients, sources of energy for cooking or transportation distances, it is possible to find out which options have the lowest carbon footprints.
