Shortly after I mentioned the Carbon Footprint Calculator in my last post I got an email from an alternative provider that I just want to mention here. Easy to make your own choice 😉  https://www.co2nsensus.com/carbon-offset-calculator.

As the Surname of Nikola Tesla https://www.britannica.com/biography/Nikola-Tesla was already used, Nikola Motor Company - "a pioneer in electric heavy duty applications. Nikola offers both pure electric and also hydrogen electric powertrains to cover class 8 in transportation" - took the First name. Nikola is a raising star in the truck market with a lot of interesting partnerships around the world. They are even battling Tesla's Cybertruck with the Nikola Badger, coming Sep-2020. Any Carbon Footprint Calculator might be helpful to decide, if you need a truck at all, even when it is 100% Electrical or Hydrogen.

For more helpful information you can also see the Carbon Disclosure Project website at https://www.cdp.net/en, "We focus investors, companies and cities on taking urgent action to build a truly sustainable economy by measuring and understanding their environmental impact".
