Carbon foot print

  • The total amount of greenhouse gases produced to directly and indirectly support human activities, usually expressed in equivalent tons of carbon dioxide (CO2).
  • Carbon dioxide is a so called greenhouse gas causing global warming .
  • Other greenhouse gases which might be emitted as a result of your activities are e.g. methane and ozone.
  • These greenhouse gases are normally also taken into account for the carbon footprint.
  • They are converted into the amount of CO2 that would cause the same effects on global warming (this is called equivalent CO2 amount).
  • Your carbon footprint is the sum of all emissions of CO2 (carbon dioxide), which were induced by your activities in a given time frame.
  • Usually a carbon footprint is calculated for the time period of a year.
