Carbon Independent suggests that having calculated your carbon footprint, you should set a target of reducing it by 10% each year. The two biggest contributors to my carbon footprint are gas for heating and my general spending. Having turned true gas boiler off for the summer, I will see whether that gives the desired reduction. As regards general spending, I will look at the carbon footprint of what I am buying – but the Carbon Independent calculator is not very sensitive so I am will need a different calculator.
