Carbon Footprint/Off Setting

 

Carbon Footprint

A carbon footprint is: the total set of GHG emissions caused by an organization, event or product. For simplicity of reporting, it is often expressed in terms of the amount of carbon dioxide, or its equivalent of other GHGs emitted.

Carbon Off setting

Carbon offsetting is the mitigation of carbon footprints through the development of alternative projects, such assolar or wind energy orreforestation.
