Carbon footprint

Due to the increasing impact on the environment, the focus on reducing it has become a trend. Climate change is experienced every day on a global scale, but what causes us to suffer such negative effects? The burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas), deforestation, intensive agriculture… and other human activities generate greenhouse gas emissions, the result of which is threatening to all life on the planet.

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a major contributor to climate change. The carbon footprint has become a measure for assessing environmental impact.

An example of this is the implementation of green taxes by governments to encourage industries to improve their technologies in a more environmentally friendly way. Production chains require suppliers to be more efficient in their carbon footprint.
