What is it?

A carbon footprint is a sum of emissions of greenhouse gases caused directly or indirectly by a given individual, organisation, event, or product.

A carbon footprint covers the emissions of:
– carbon dioxide,
– methane,
– nitrous oxide
– and other greenhouse gases
expressed as a CO2 equivalent. An organisation’s carbon footprint comprises emissions caused by all its activities, including energy consumption by the buildings and means of transport it uses.

A carbon footprint of a product comprises emissions caused by the extraction of raw materials used to manufacture it, its production, use, storage or recycling after use.
