What is a carbon footprint?
A carbon footprint is a measure of the total amount of greenhouse gases, primarily carbon dioxide (CO2) and other equivalents like methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O), emitted directly or indirectly by an individual, organisation, event, product, or process over a specific period. It quantifies the environmental impact in terms of climate change and is usually expressed in units of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e), which standardises the impact of various greenhouse gases based on their global warming potential.

How do you calculate your carbon footprint?
Numerous carbon calculations are available online. The best one for you will depend on your needs, what you want it to show you, and how much information you need/have, such as how much carbon is used to heat your home or business, how many pollutants your car (or even your company’s fleet) emits, or even how much rubbish you produce.
