Carbon Footprint

WHAT IS CARBON FOOTPRINT?

One of the most important agenda items of developed and developing countries in the world is greenhouse gas emissions. With the start of the industrial revolution, natural climate changes have been experienced and in addition to this, a brand new period has been entered in which human activities also affect the climate. In the world, steps are being taken and studies are being carried out to switch to a low-carbon economy against the threat of global warming and climate change.

The concept of carbon footprint has been revealed in the studies carried out to calculate the CO2 gas that directly affects global warming.

It is a measure of the damage to the environment in terms of the amount of greenhouse gas produced as a result of human activities and measured in terms of carbon dioxide.

Carbon footprint; calculated by institutions for legal obligations, access to green financing instruments, corporate social responsibility, customer or investor demands, marketing and corporate image, mandatory or voluntary reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and participation in emission trading mechanisms.
