Your carbon footprint is a representation of the effect you, or your business, have on the climate in terms of the total amount of carbon dioxide (CO2 ) emissions you produce. Many of your actions generate carbon emissions, which contribute to accelerating global warming and climate change. By measuring your carbon footprint, you can get a better sense of what your individual impact is and which parts of your lifestyle deserve the greatest attention. Over 88% of Guidance's carbon footprint is a result of electricity usage! Remember to power off your computers and turn off lights when not in use.
