A carbon footprint calculator with no data input, no training and no tech integration. Can this be a thing?
Time and time again we hear from event professionals that they want to plan and put on more sustainable events. But the time and effort involved in all accurate carbon footprint calculations to help their planning process is just prohibitive. The events industry has been under huge pressure for the past couple of years and anything that adds to that pressure, or pulls anyone in the team away from the core business, is going to struggle to get buy-in.
Which is where our clever carbon footprint calculator track comes in.
“1,000x easier than your competition” – Agency Sales Director
Track measures and reports on the sustainability of any event, large or small. It shows you which event factors are significant for the carbon footprint and sustainability of the event and which are less so. It’s a carbon footprint calculator that was specifically designed so that we, not you, do all ‘heavy-lifting’ on the calculations, so that you don’t have to. All that’s needed to carry out the calculations is an event brief. No spreadsheets, no data inputting from you, no report-building. Here are four things we think makes it unique:
What makes track fuss-free?
- A service-based approach, not a platform – the best analogy we’ve heard was from one of our clients who described it as a bit like the HMRC website and process for UK tax returns. You can of course do your tax return yourself, using the online data input forms and facilities provided online. Or, you could pay an accountant to put all the information together for you in the right format. Simpler, quicker and undoubtedly with less potential for errors.
- No data entry – when we say ‘no data entry’ we mean it. There are no hidden requirements for anyone in your team to sit and input any the data from your event. We do the lot.
- No tech integration, a standalone service – integrations are the bane of most IT department’s lives. Someone buys in a new tool and then finds it won’t ‘talk’ to other key pieces of software in the business. track is completely stand-alone, so you never need to worry about that.
- No training required – not only do your staff not need to input any data, they won’t need any training on track either. That’s because it’s a service, not a platform. and we do it all for them.

“Finally, someone who tells us how it is. So glad I found you.” – Senior Planner, Europe
What does track report on?
There are two sets of reports, the pre-event report means events can be assessed at the planning stage with the impact predicted. It’s perfect for RFPs, briefs and for the start of your event planning process. The post-event report then measures the actual carbon footprint after the event. The two reports can of course be compared to assess how much of your careful event planning contributed to the sustainability of the event. Our reports are simple, easy to interpret and beautifully designed.

Don’t just take our word for it though, we have hundreds of happy clients who tell us how easy track is to use and how simple it has been for their team.
