​​Calculation methodology


The CO2 footprint of your trip is calculated as: the distance of your trip multiplied by the CO2 emissions of a passenger for the different means of transport, per kilometer. 
It concerns only the main part of the route and does not take into account the transport from / to the station or airport

Average emissions for a passenger per kilometer:

Trains Renfe-SNCF en Coopération
3,4 g of CO2 per kilometer

Cars
205 g of CO2per kilometer

​Airplanes
168 g of CO2 per kilometer
