Ecoval - internet platform for environmental assessment and trends

Objective

To date, environmental projects have tended to focus on the role that industry and big business plays with regards to pollution. However, there is a complete dearth of accessible information on the impact that the individual citizen has on the environment as a global system. While many people are conscious of environmental issues, they have no means by which to judge their overall impact on the environment. To this end, ECOVAL fills a vital gap in the environmental knowledge base through the innovative development of an internet platform that enables individuals to assess the impact of their lifestyle on the environment. Through primary data collection, based on self-completed questionnaires, Coeval's internet platform will build a database of individuals' CO2 emissions which, in turn, will provide a tool for cross-regional and European-wide comparison. Ultimately, the platform will enable EU decision makers to adapt their environmental policies to their local population.
