A carbon footprint is a measure of the amount of greenhouse gases (GHG) emitted as part of the everyday operations of an organisation or the life cycle of a product. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the most common GHG emitted in terms of quantity and impact on global warming, but other GHGs such as methane and nitrous oxide also have an impact on climate change.

Organisations have an important role in mitigating against climate change and are increasingly acting to reduce carbon emissions and work to “net zero” ambitions. Drivers include international or domestic legislation, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) analysis and reporting, and a more environmentally- and socially-responsible public.
