Let’s face it we hear the term carbon foot print all the time. It’s almost one of those phrases that has become throw away. It’s dropped into polite conversation and used on the news on regular occasions by many journalists who want to demonstrate their eco credentials and expertise.
We have changed our light bulbs for new environmentally friendly ones that in reality don’t illuminate the room enough and we switch our televisions off properly, and then complain about how long they take to start up!!
In the above we jest, but in todays society it’s important for individuals and organisations alike to be aware of the impact that their carbon footprint is having on our precious planet. The effects that greenhouse gases are having on the world cannot be ignored and what’s more governments are taking action to ensure that emissions are reduced and controlled.
