This climate+ package assumes a 2 week trip for one from North America to Europe, including the flights and hotel stay.
|Hotels||0.434 MT CO2|
|Flights||1.794 MT CO2|
|Total||2.228 MT CO2|
Hotels emit about 31kg of CO2 per room per night, if a person stays at a hotel for 2 weeks there would be a total of 434kg CO2 emissions.
31kg x 14 days = 434kg CO2
In order to convert 434kg CO2 into metric tons CO2 we use the conversion factor we get 0.434 MT CO2
434kg CO2 x 0.001 = 0.434 MT CO2
Planes emit 115g CO2 per kilometer. We use the conversion factor 0.000001 to get from grams to metric tons and we get 0.000115 MT of CO2 per kilometer of air travel.
115grams x 0.000001 = 0.000115 MT Carbon
A trip from Canada to Europe is about 7,800 kilometres one way. This means that the round trip would be 15,600 kilometres in total.
7,800 km x 2 ways =15,600 kilometres
If we multiple 15,600 kilometres by 0.000115 MT CO2 emissions per kilometer we get a total of 1.794 MT CO2
15,600 km x 0.000115 MT CO2 = 1.794 MT CO2
If we combine emissions from the hotel and flights we get a total of 2.228 MT CO2
0.434 MT + 1.794 MT = 2.228 MT CO2
