Public emissions are currently divided into all inhabitants in Norway as we all benefit from our public sector. The emissions are divided into municipalities, counties, and national levels. There is a possibility to expand this emission data to reflect the climate footprint of your local municipality based on where you live.
Probably, the most effective way to impact public emissions is to vote for politicians that put climate and environment on the top of their list. This is because it’s politicians and public workers that can reduce your part of public emissions.
The simple explanation is that The Norwegian Government (energiogklima.no) uses territorial climate data, which means that they calculate greenhouse gas per capita based on what we release within Norway’s borders. This is generally the way all countries report on climate emissions today.
The difference in numbers is mainly because our calculations are based on the consumer-perspective. This means that we include emissions from products and services we buy, but are emitted in other countries. As individuals we have great purchasing power, and what we buy today is mostly produced in other countries. By allocating global emissions to people you are able to ensure individual power of everyday choice and habit.
Challenges on Ducky are created by companies and organisations. If you are part of a company hosting a challenge, the project leader at your company should have the codes for you and your team to participate.

A few possible reasons why you are unable to join the challenge:
The objective of the environmental challenge is to reduce your CO2-emission, by ticking off the climate activities you have done. The statistics will show your reduction of CO2-emissions during your participation.
Every climate activity shows you the amount of CO2 saved by doing them. Logging them means that you add it to your total amount of saved KgCO2.
A deleted user profile will become anonymous, but will currently still affect the CO2saving score in a challenge, even when deleted. The effect will be negative, as it represents a participant that is not registering any actions.
In current challenges participants can not be removed after joining, as all user history needs to be there for proper score calculations. We will look into what we can do to improve this in future challenges.
