Do you know your carbon footprint?
With CODEX you can calculate your carbon footprint and generate your own carbon offsets in real time
CODEX Automatically Calculates Your Carbon Emissions
However you get around, CODEX automatically tracks and calculates the carbon emissions you produce, providing you with live updates on your carbon footprint.
Generate Carbon Offsets From Your Low Carbon Choices
Every time you choose to walk to the store, take the bus to school, hop on a train to visit family, or bike to work, CODEX generates carbon offsets.
Get Paid for the Offsets You Generate
As you accumulate offsets, cash out. At up to 5 tons of CO2 saved per year, your simple choice to bike makes a big difference
What do we do?
We provide you with the tools to live a carbon neutral life, and a community that does the same
The Average American Drives 30 Miles Per Day
When combined, this translates to over 3.5 trillion miles driven per year throughout the U.S. We can do better. By becoming more aware of your own carbon footprint, you become a force for good in the world and have fun in the process. Together we can create positive change and a better world for all.
How Carbon Codex Works
Our app calculates two metrics, called Quantified Carbon Dioxide (QCD) and Quantified Avoided Carbon (QAC) from your smartphone movement. QCD provides valuable baseline information, which we anonymize, aggregate, and analyze to improve climate change models and calculations.
Each time you bike, walk or take mass transit CODEX calculates the QAC as a result of your actions.
Lets say you drive to work on Mondays, and then bike and take public transit the rest of the week. Each day, CODEX automatically senses your mode of transport, calculates your emissions, and generates carbon offsets whenever you choose to use low carbon transport. As your QCD decreases, our app calculates and attributes the resulting QAC to you.
What’s In It For Me?
You earn rewards while making the world a better place. According to the United Nations, we only have till 2030 to reduce our emissions to zero. Additionally, value of the carbon offsets you generate is likely to increase over time, as climate change intensifies.
And since we tie your offsets to a low-energy blockchain it stays secure, providing confidence that the credits actually were generated from a carbon neutral activity.
Inhale. Exhale. Together we can help you focus on living your best life and allow you to make a positive impact on the planet.
Become Aware of Your Impact
Whether its assisting another person, making your mindset, community, and others lives better through volunteering your time, generosity, simply slowing down, or saying hello to strangers, your ability to change your own mind through awareness, and therefore the world surrounding you is remarkable.
By being aware of your impact, it allows you to amplify your best intentions, and helps to minimize those moments when you’re not at your best. By cultivating mindfulness, you become aware of your impacts, and can assist in reducing the negative externalities caused by your actions. Mindfulness leads to the larger perspective of “We are all in this together, and we can choose, in each moment, how we react to our surroundings.” So get out of your car, breathe deeply, and go for a walk. We live in an amazing time of global inter-connectivity. Lets make the world a better place together.
Climate Change Affects Us All
It’s easy to shrug off climate change, until you understand that it will affect every part of your life. Rising temperatures will lead to more severe weather, heat waves, droughts, wildfires, along with crop failures, disruptions both to our food system and our water supply. By understanding the causes of climate change, we can make better decisions to mitigate its effects.
Understanding Climate Change
Trees Produce Oxygen from Carbon Dioxide.
Cars (And People) Do The Opposite.
There Are Too Few Trees and Too Many Cars.
Because of this, the earth’s climate is changing at a faster rate than any point in modern civilization. These changes will impact the entire planet, and every person living on it. The evidence is clear that this is the result of human activity. Here is how.
CO2 is the most significant source of warming, and since the industrial era, its concentration in our atmosphere has increased by over 40%. Our actions, especially the burning of massive amounts of fossil fuels, is one of the primary drivers of this change.
The result of this startling rise in atmospheric CO2 has been an intensification of the natural greenhouse effect. This is the process by which CO2 and other gases in the upper atmosphere trap solar radiation to keep the planet warm.
This extra heat is increasing global surface temperatures to unprecedented levels, which if left unchecked will result in dire consequences including: extreme weather, droughts, wildfires, food insecurity, dangerous changes to ocean chemistry.
Postive Feedback Loops
There are several 'positive feedback loops' which accelerate climate change. The Ice-Albedo feedback loop is perhaps the most well studied, but there are others, such as the Methane-Permafrost feedback loop, and Water Vapor-Cloud Cover feedback loop. Scientists' climate models leave some uncertainty, but the fact remains, if we keep burning fossil fuels, the world will keep heating up, with disastrous and potentially life-threatening consequences.
Global temperatures have already risen 1.5°C, and will likely warm by another 1.5°C. The Earth’s climate will continue to be affected by greenhouse gas emissions from our industrial era activities for the coming decades, and even centuries. Beyond these next few decades, the amount the climate changes depends on what we decide to do about emissions today. The actions we take now will affect our short-term well-being and the long-term health of our planet and children. We need to take the future of the planet into our own hands, and act swiftly and decisively to reduce our individual carbon footprint.Sign Up
What Can I Do?
This is where Cascadia Carbon‘s CODEX App comes in. All human activities add to our carbon output, but transportation has one of the most significant impacts on your carbon footprint, and making smart choices about how you get around can make a big difference. In fact, over 20% of the United State’s total carbon emissions come from light trucks and cars, like the ones that we drive every day to work, to the store, and to school. CODEX App helps you track not only the carbon you produce, but also, the carbon you save, providing you the incentive to choose alternative methods of transportation – all while having fun with your friends in the carbon-conscious community. Awesome, right?
To solve Climate Change we all must lower our carbon emissions
Carbon CODEX automatically logs your emissions from driving and helps you choose low carbon transport by generating offsets when you bike.
