What is a carbon footprint?

 

‘The total amount of greenhouse gases produced to directly and indirectly support human activities, usually expressed in equivalent tons of carbon dioxide (CO2).’

In other words: When someone in your company drives a vehicle, the engine burns fuel which creates a certain amount of CO2, depending on its fuel consumption and the driving distance. (CO2 is the chemical symbol for carbon dioxide). When you heat your business with oil, gas or coal, then you also generate CO2. Even if you heat your business with electricity, the generation of the electrical power may also have emitted a certain amount of CO2.

 

When you purchase products or services, your footprint  also includes the energy used in the supply chain, including the production of raw materials and the transportation of goods.

 

A common misunderstanding is that it costs more to make your business greener.

Signa can help you in developing robust carbon and sustainability credentials and to make your business and its products & services carbon neutral.  It may be as simple as switching your service providers to carbon neutral providers ensuring there is no contribution to your footprint from the supply chain.
