Why Carbon Footprint?
Consumption in Europe is responsible for roughly 4 billion out of 36 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide emitted globally each year.
Since industrialisation, we have been burning fossil fuels which release carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. These trap heat in the atmosphere, heavily contributing to Climate Change.
A special report by the IPCC warns of significant harmful impacts of 1.5 degrees warming. To avoid this we must collectively reduce carbon emissions to zero by 2050, in line with UK and EU targets.
