Mobile Carbon Calculator Launched
Thursday, 18 February 2010
Carbonfund.org has partnered with OpenPath Products to develop and launch a mobile version of our carbon calculators. Initially, Carbonfund.org’s mobile carbon calculators work on the Symbian platform – the operating system for many new Nokia phones. The calculators will soon be available for public download on the phones. The calculators will allow users to reduce or offset their carbon footprint on the go by supporting Carbonfund.org third-party validated carbon reduction projects. The mobile carbon calculator was developed by OpenPath for the Symbian Foundation in response to a comment posted on the Symbian Ideas website – an interactive forum that enables users to ask questions and suggest ideas for the Symbian Platform. The mobile carbon calculator has been a featured demo app for the Symbian Foundation at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. This mobile carbon calculator is helping to further Carbonfund.org’s mission of carbon reductions, education and outreach. Carbonfund.org has also worked previously with developers on the Ecorio mobile carbon footprint application for the T-Mobile G1 phone.
