Service Provider DescriptionAbout EarthLab.com - The EarthLab Foundation:
EarthLab.com is a leading climate crisis community that provides a practical guide to green living through community interaction, exclusive environmental news, advice from experts and key analysis. EarthLab features a personalized Carbon Calculator, the first Carbon and Lifestyle Calculator of its kind - a unique three-minute survey that generates a carbon footprint score (ECP Score), which members can then save, work to reduce and track their success over time - as a member creates their own personal green strategy.
EarthLab was founded by internet community pioneer and social entrepreneur Duane Dahl who maintains the belief that technology has the power to make a positive, long-term contribution to solving the world’s environmental challenges through education and localized analysis.
The EarthLab calculator was first presented to a global audience on July 7, 2007 in conjunction with the Live Earth Concerts staged throughout the world. The Carbon Calculator has become the most widely used calculator in the world.
EarthLab has forged partnerships with numerous world-class brands and organizations including the Alliance for Climate Protection, chaired by Nobel Peace Prize winner and former Vice President Al Gore, Live Earth, SOS – the movement for a climate in crisis, Vespa Scooters, Hearst / The Daily Green, The Prime Time Emmy’s, Leo DiCaprio’s, The 11th Hour, Dell Computers, eSurance, world-class chef and restaurateur Mario Batali and The Carbon Challenge, an international sailing team preparing for Volvo Ocean Race 2008-09 and The America's Cup.
The EarthLab Foundation is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization headquartered in Kirkland, Washington. The foundation provides functional outreach and reverse research and educational efforts in part through EarthLab.com.
