A carbon footprint is a measure of the impact our activities have on the environment, and in particular climate change. It relates to the amount of greenhouse gases produced in our day-to-day lives through burning fossil fuels for electricity, heating and transportation etc. The carbon footprint is a measurement of all greenhouse gases we individually produce and has units of tons (or kg) of carbon dioxide equivalent. We currently live in a carbon-based energy economy. Our incredible advancements in technology, transportation and manufacturing in the last two centuries have been primarily derived from our reliance and utilization of fossil fuels.
In the coming decades the transition to lower carbon and zero carbon energy production will drive our economic growth. Taking the ‘early adopter’ route to green development will have long term financial benefits and will also prepare your company for the coming low carbon energy economy.
