Environmental impact of The Justice Syndicate


To run a single performance of The Justice Syndicate with 12 audience members, we use the following equipment:

  • 12 x iPad Mini 3rd Generation,
  • MacBook Pro,
  • Linksys WRT1900ACS Dual Band AC1900 Gigabit Smart Wi-Fi Router.

Breakdown of impact

The following is a breakdown of the kilograms of CO2e produced (via charging/powering equipment) during a single show:

  • (12 x iPad Mini, 20% battery use)
    Power used: 10776mAh, 0.04kWh
    Total = 0.011kg CO2e
  • (Linksys WRT1900ACS Dual Band AC1900 Gigabit Smart Wi-Fi Router, 2 hours)
    Power used: ~11-12W, 12V[Source], 0.02kWh
    Total = 0.006kg CO2e
  • (MacBook Pro (2018), 10% battery)
    Power used: 633mAh, 11.34V, 0.007kWh
    Total = 0.002kg CO2e

Total CO2 equivalent

The total of all equipment used during one show (1 show, 12 members, 2 hours)

0.0113473478304kg CO2e + 0.006227539999999999kg CO2e + 0.0020319387354kg CO2e

= 0.019kg CO2e


One show, with 12 members, lasting for 2 hours is the equivalent to:

MacBook Pro Battery
iPhone X[s]
  • 0.017% of a single passenger’s emissions during a one-way flight from London Gatwick, United Kingdom to Munich International, Germany,
  • Charging 96% of a MacBook Pro (late 2013) battery,
  • Driving 150m in an average car (a model emitting the EU's 2015 target of 0.13kg CO2/km),
  • Charging 144% of an iPhone X[s] battery.

Location specifics

The show takes place in a room with domestic lighting and heating, using existing furniture and fittings.
