What is Carbon Footprint?

What is Carbon Footprint?

Global warming causes climate change, and climate change causes many problems on a global scale. On the other hand, global warming is caused by the greenhouse effect of CO2 (carbon dioxide) emitted into the atmosphere with the use of fossil fuels. Carbon footprint is a measure that allows us to calculate the damage to the environment in terms of greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere, measured in unit carbon dioxide.

Carbon footprint is divided into two as direct / primary footprint and indirect / secondary footprint. The primary footprint covers CO2 emissions generated by the direct use of fossil fuels, such as energy consumed in households and transportation vehicles frequently used in daily life. Secondary footprint covers CO2 emissions indirectly caused by the production processes of all products we use in our lives and during the process from their deterioration to their dysfunction.
