A carbon footprint is a standard that is used to quantify the impact we have on the environment. Your carbon footprint is the direct effect your actions and lifestyle have on the environment in terms of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Contributing largely to the size of your footprint are your travel needs, and your electricity usage at home. But even your diet and the clothes you wear have an impact. The bigger our carbon footprints – the more we accelerate global warming and climate change.

We encourage you to reduce your carbon footprint. You can measure the impact you are having on the environment by calculating your carbon footprint here.
