By using the Mingleverse MingleRoom service you are helping to prevent thousands of tons of transport-related greenhouse gases from being emitted into the atmosphere. Minglers set their location in their profiles and this information is used to calculate how much carbon-dioxide-equivalent would have been emitted if they had travelled to meet in person. The calculation depends on the length of the “journey” that would have been undertaken. Below 200km, we assume you would have travelled by car, between 200 and 500km we assume a short-haul flight and above 500km we use a long-haul flight calculation. For each of these journey types we use a different value for the average amount of carbon emitted per kilometer.
The Mingleverse Carbon Meter system gives you the ability to track your emission savings for the Mingle Room, for yourself and for the whole Mingleverse system.
