With millions of people confined to their homes, in late April we saw how coal consumption suddenly plummeted, being one of the « good news » that has emerged during this pandemic.

Capture is an application, developed in Singapore, that invites us to measure our carbon footprint daily. Its creators assure that « it facilitates the monitoring, reduction and elimination of CO2 emissions from everyday life ».

The environmental impact of your movements or what you eat

Founded by Abdul Aziz and Josie Stoker, this startup has created a platform that seeks make their users more aware of the carbon they generate in your day to day. Capture has three main functions: to track, reduce and eliminate CO2 emissions from our daily lives.

This app (free for iOS and Android) will use the GPS data of our device, so automatically detect our means of transport and keep an updated monitoring of the emissions we have generated.

Also, it will give us a better perspective of our environmental impact, what are our daily consumption patterns and the choices that cause the most significant climate impact.

Obviously, CO2 emissions are not only related to our means of transport, and that is why Capture includes other types of decisions that we make on a daily basis. For example, the type of food we eat.

Eventually, the creators of this app claim that they will be adding many more features, such as the option to add purchases (clothing or technology) and the use of energy that we do in our home.

In this way, this platform will become more sophisticated to offer us a more detailed measurement of the kilograms of carbon dioxide that we generate monthly and ways to reverse this situation.
