As the most pressing challenge we are facing in this century, climate change has resulted in many adverse impacts on human existence. It is the greenhouse gases, primarily stemming from the global expanse of industrial activities, that shoulder the responsibility for this climatic change. In order to combat the challenges and threats it has brought upon; the first step is to account the amount of greenhouse gas emissions and take necessary actions to mitigate this problem.
What is Carbon Footprint?
Carbon footprint is the indicator that interprets your contribution to climate change which leads to the global challenge. This quantifies the total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions caused directly and indirectly by an individual, organization, event, or product. Currently, carbon footprint quantification is based on ISO 14064-1-2:2018 and ISO 14067: 2019 revised standards and can be certified with a third-party.
