Carbon Footprint Quest

A carbon footprint measures the total greenhouse gas emissions caused directly and indirectly by a person, organisation, event or product. 

A personal footprint is the emissions caused by an individual’s consumption.  It is a measure of how a person’s lifestyle contributes to climate change.  By shrinking their personal footprint a person can limit the effect their lifestyle has on the earth’s climate.  This means that by choosing to do things differently you can save carbon use, emissions and energy, and because of this, your carbon footprint will reduce.

Personal footprints can be broken down in to five main categories: housing, travel, food, products and services.  These categories capture all the major ways personal consumption and use can cause greenhouse gas emissions.

By reducing the amount of Carbon we use, we reduce our Carbon Footprint.
