It is a useful tool to understand the impact of personal or organisational behaviour on global climate change and key to managing and reporting on carbon emissions.

It’s a good idea to know your what your carbon footprint is and the World Wildlife Federation (WWF) help you do this on their website. It asks you a series of questions about your lifestyle and other factors that can contribute to your carbon footprint and produces a figure at the end.
