The greenhouse gas emissions and specially the CO2 emissions are one of the most important causes of climate change. The most of the activities that human develops (transportation, food, etc.) and the used goods need energy and it means a contribution to the emissions to the atmosphere.
The carbon footprint identifies the sources of the greenhouse gas emissions of a product. This allows defining more assertive objectives, policies for gas emission reduction and money saving strategies; all this as a consequence of a deeper knowledge of the critical points for the gas emission reduction that can be or can’t be a direct responsibility of the company.
