3 reasons to know your own carbon footprint

Understanding our individual carbon footprint is important because it helps us to identify our personal contribution to climate change and take steps to reduce it. Carbon footprint refers to the amount of greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide, that is released into the atmosphere as a result of our daily activities, such as driving a car, using electricity, or eating meat.

Climate change is one of the most pressing issues facing our planet, and carbon dioxide is a major contributor to global warming. The more carbon dioxide we release into the atmosphere, the more we contribute to climate change, and the more we will suffer the consequences of extreme weather events, rising sea levels, and loss of biodiversity. By understanding our individual carbon footprint, we can take steps to reduce our impact on the environment, such as driving less, using energy-efficient appliances, and eating a more plant-based diet.

Additionally, understanding our individual carbon footprint can also help us to make more informed decisions when it comes to choosing products and services that have a lower environmental impact. By supporting environmentally responsible companies and products, we can help to reduce the carbon footprint of our communities and the world as a whole.

Understanding the importance of it, Climatora has launched an individual carbon calculator (carbon calculator link)  that helps track the most accurate measure of carbon footprint following the GHG protocol.
