Recently we have focused on the importance of a business understanding their carbon footprint, what they can do to build a carbon reduction plan, and ways to reduce carbon consumption.

By building a carbon footprint, a business has a measure and impact of the organisations environmental impact in terms of the amount of greenhouse gases produced, measured in units of carbon dioxide.

It is calculated by adding up the emissions from all sources, including transportation, energy use, and the production and disposal of goods and services. A carbon footprint is an important measure of sustainability, because greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide, contribute to global warming and climate change.

There are many ways for companies to reduce their carbon footprint, including using energy-efficient appliances and vehicles, reducing energy consumption, using renewable energy sources, and reducing waste.

It is also important to consider the carbon footprint of the products we buy and the services we use, and to support businesses and organisations that are committed to sustainability.
