FAQs about the Carbon Footprint
4. How is the Carbon Footprint calculated?
There are applications in the network that allow to measure the “carbon footprint” through some data related to daily activities. However, it must be considered that the quantifications to measure greenhouse gas emissions vary from one country to another, therefore, this must be considered when measuring. These calculations have the advantage for the person, organization or product to know the magnitude of their carbon footprint and take measures to reduce it. By making a reduction in your emissions you can apply for a “reduced emissions certificate” (CER) or carbon bonus. Each certificate means that you have reduced one ton of CO₂.
