What is a carbon footprint?

A carbon footprint is the entire amount of greenhouse gases (such as carbon dioxide and methane) produced by human actions. According to pawprint.eco, the average carbon footprint per person in the UK is 12.7 tonnes of CO2 per year, and in the US, it's 21 tonnes.

By 2050, the average worldwide carbon footprint per year must fall to under 2 tonnes per person in order to have the best chance of preventing an increase in global temperatures of 2°C.

Why should you measure your carbon footprint?

Worldwide greenhouse gas emissions have escalated to record levels. Without action to reverse this trend, the consequent rise in global temperature has the potential to lead to catastrophic climate change.

The UN Paris Agreement agreed to limit warming to 1.5°C, which requires significant changes across the global economy.
