A carbon footprint is the total amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions emitted into the atmosphere due to the activities of a person, organisation, or product. It serves as a measure of its environmental impact, considering all relevant sources of emissions associated with a defined population, system, or activity.

Offsetting your emissions is a crucial component of reducing your environmental footprint. Not all emissions are preventable. By offsetting residual emissions that cannot be reduced or avoided, you effectively reach net zero or carbon neutrality. This means that you strike a balance between the emissions you emit vs the emissions you remove from the atmosphere. This is achieved by implementing carbon-reduction strategies and offsetting hard-to-abate emissions. Carbon offsetting is a crucial tool to restore nature as it funds vital restoration initiatives and helps individuals and organisations achieve carbon neutrality. When a business becomes carbon neutral, it not only demonstrates a commitment to environmental responsibility but also improves the business’ brand reputation and helps it connect with consumers who care about sustainability.
To achieve global environmental goals in line with the US Paris Agreement and mitigate harm to nature, we all have to take action and address our environmental impact to ensure a better, more sustainable world where nature can continue to support us. The first step is measuring your carbon footprint, reducing emissions that can be reduced, and then offsetting remaining emissions.
Embarking on a sustainable and net zero journey requires a meticulous understanding of your carbon footprint. DGB Group's CO2 Expert tool simplifies this process, allowing organisations to measure and manage their emissions effectively. Here's a step-by-step guide on how the calculator operates.
