Developing a greenhouse gas emissions inventory is a key step toward understanding and managing local emissions. With this, a household emission calculator was developed to provide a local greenhouse gas inventory (GHGI) tool to monitor and identify emission sources and serve as a basis for the mitigation strategies. Post hoc comparisons using the Tukey HSD test indicated that the carbon emissions of households living inside a subdivision (M=4.9, SD=1.41) is significantly higher than households living outside subdivisions (M=4.26, SD=0.62). In terms of income, the higher the income, the more tendency for households to buy equipment and recreational appliances (73%) which directly influenced the carbon footprint output (r 0.129*). In transportation, old model vehicles (r 0.425*) and having no itinerary plan (r 0.375*) correlated with the emissions coming from the transport sector. In food, meat preference (0.401*) and reheating of food (r 0.312*) strongly affects the overall emissions. Using the greenhouse gas inventory, the respondents had a lower monthly carbon footprint in July 2022 (M=3.71, SD=1.12) compared to the previous months (M=4.56, SD=1.82). The study suggests that awareness of actions and the presence of quantifiable instruments result in more accurate measures to mitigate carbon emissions.
