Strava offers tool to calculate carbon savings and encourage more environmentally friendly transportation

August 3, 2023

Strava has announced a new tool that focuses on carbon savings. Starting today (Cycle to Work Day in the UK), users who tag their activities as commutes on Strava can see their estimated carbon savings when commuting by running, walking, cycling or e-biking instead of traveling by car.

A recent study revealed that 72% of companies have mandated office returns, and commuting by bike and foot around the world has been further influenced by a global fuel and cost of living crisis. Through the update, which displays the carbon saved figure on user activities labelled as ‘commute’, Strava hopes to influence more of its global community of over 100 million users to choose less carbon-intensive means of commuting.
