We are working towards a better world but we are not yet perfect ourselves. Thanks for joining the For Good Community as a pioneer! The For Good app makes sustainable living easy, intelligible and fun! For Good is the first app to automatically display your overall ecological footprint and to give you tips on how to reduce that footprint. It will allow you, together with all the For Good users, to make a profound difference. Download the app for free and start working on a brighter future for our planet!
When you open the For Good app for the first time, you will be asked a number of details in relation to your transport and energy consumption. You will find your car’s fuel consumption in your car documents or at http:// www.ecoscore.be but you can also select an average value based on the type of car you drive. As a rule, your annual energy consumption (heating and electricity) is printed on your energy supplier’s annual bill but you can also select an average value based on your energy consumption profile.
WHAT DOES THE APP DO?
This feature automatically tracks your transport and gives you an overview of your ecological footprint. If you click on the route symbol, you get an overview of your itineraries with the mode of transport you used. Walking, cycling or public transport will appear in green with a smiley as the ecological footprint is quite small. When you drive or fly, it will pop up in red. We make use of location tracking. This does have a bit of an impact on your battery life as is the case with every app that makes use of tracking technology.
Via the + button, you can enter your meter readings (gas and electricity) when it suits you. This feature will tell you what impact your energy consumption has on our environment.
We are currently developing an updated version of this feature to offer more advice tailored to your profile. Within these 3 domains, For Good will give you more than 200 tips to reduce your ecological footprint, which you can decide to implement or keep in mind for a later time. The historical overview will show you how the tips you chose to follow affect your footprint and how your footprint changes over the course of time. And you can check how your performance stacks up against that of the wider For Good community.
