This former UoB student is helping with the launch of the latest climate app
This app will allow you to check your individual carbon footprint and for others too
The latest climate app which allows you to track your own carbon footprint and other people’s emissions will be launching soon. The team behind the upcoming app includes Holly Pittaway a former UoB student who graduated this year.
Holly, a community builder for the app is excited about it’s launch. “The best part about the app is that not only can you track your own emissions, but your friend’s and family’s too,” she told The Birmingham Tab.
The Climate App is awaiting funds for its official launch and when functioning it will allow users to track their own personal progress in data points and graphs.
Holly Pittaway former UoB history student, explained the concept of the free app. “The Climate App is all about individual carbon-cutting. On installing the app, users will be asked a series of questions about their carbon footprint, e.g. are you vegan, do you drive etc,” she told The Birmingham Tab.
“From there a rough footprint will be calculated and the app will recommend steps to reduce it, e.g. challenging the user to go vegan for a week or cycle to work,” she continued.
Other people’s carbon footprint can also be tracked with this app. “The best part about the app is that not only can you track your own emissions, but your friend’s and family’s (if they download the app too) to help lobby positive-peer pressure to change for the environment,” she added.

The crowdfunding campaign officially launched last Thursday and founder Samuel Naef is hoping the app will be a success. “We have already developed the alpha version of the app (MVP) with no funding using volunteers,” he said.
“You’ll be able to see your personal progress in data points and graphs. You’ll also be able to see the total impact made by all users, and the global progress and actions that humanity needs to do too,” he continued.
