What is ‘Your Carbon Footprint?’There are actually two different ways to evaluate your carbon footprint.
- A primary carbon footprint measures CO2 emissions directly from an activity or organization.
- A secondary carbon footprint measures the CO2 emissions indirectly. It includes calculating emissions throughout the life the product is used. This could include things such as mining raw materials to create the initial product. It could also include the use of energy used by the product over time, and its eventual reuse or disposal.
