The carbon footprint is a concept derived from the English "carbon footprint". It is a method used to determine the emissions of greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, lorofluorocarbons and ozone), resulting from manufacturing processes of a product and or service activities. To do so, the cycles of each product, process or service are identified in order to find its carbon footprint.
The carbon footprint measures the impact that a human activity has on our environment in terms of greenhouse gas emissions, expressed in units of carbon dioxide. Checking your carbon footprint allows you to demonstrate your environmental responsibility and shows the commitment of each individual/company.
In this training we will talk about two methodologies, the GreenHouseProtocol and ISO 14067:2018.
