What Is Your Footprint?

What Is Your Footprint?

December 04, 2019

Your footprint is a way of showing your carbon emissions, compared to other people and other countries. It’s your impression on the planet.

The WWF goes on further to describe your carbon footprint as including:

• ‘Food’ covers diet, food waste and buying habits.
• ‘Home’ covers energy type and usage in the house and the presence of energy-saving measures.
• ‘Travel’ covers personal and public transport usage for leisure and work, and flights.
• ‘Stuff’ covers the purchases of consumable items.
