Frequently asked questions

How do you calculate commuting emissions? CarbonWise uses the latest Ministry for the Environment carbon emission factors and enables reporting on scope 3 commuting emissions through carbon management software.
Do we need to create our own commuting survey? No. We’ve created a survey for you. CarbonWise questions are designed to ensure you collect all the data you need to calculate carbon emissions, and to ensure data quality and consistency across multiple surveys. The core survey questions can’t be changed, but you can add more qualitative questions if you want.
Can we add our own questions to the commuting survey? Yes, although we recommend you keep your survey as short as possible, as that increases the likelihood employees will complete it.
How often do I need to do a commuter survey? At least once a year, and ideally every six months. Doing a survey every six months shows trends in commuting behaviour, and also helps account for seasons, as travel patterns differ in summer and winter.
Does CarbonWise track working from home? Yes. CarbonWise estimates the number of days employees work from home in a year. You can use that data to calculate working from home emissions.
How do I ensure our employees’ privacy is secure? Individual privacy is protected. CarbonWise gathers minimal personal data, and once a survey has been completed and the data analysed, it deletes all personal data. Only aggregated data is stored long-term so no individual can be identified. 
Will CarbonWise work if my organisation has locations overseas? We’re currently adding the capability to calculate emissions of Australian workplaces. Please get in touch to discuss other locations you’d like to measure, as we will keep adding more countries.
How much does it cost?

The pricing structure is built so CarbonWise is affordable for any organisation size.

Why does reducing commuting emissions matter?

Commuting is a significant contributor to global warming, but most New Zealanders still rely on cars  to travel to work. 

New Zealand’s greenhouse gas emissions rose 26% between 1990 and 2019. Transport was the biggest contributor to this rise, with emissions from road transport growing 93%, and cars contributing 54% of those emissions. Reducing commuting by car can make a dent in many organisations’ emissions.
