Carbon Emissions


Carbon emissions refer to the release of carbon dioxide, typically through the burning of fossil fuels. It is also used to refer to other man made gasses which accumulate in the atmosphere and contribute to global warming.

Carbon Footprint


A carbon footprint is a measure of the impact our activities have on the environment, and in particular climate change. It relates to the amount of greenhouse gases produced in our day-to-day lives through burning fossil fuels for electricity, heating and transportation etc.

Carbon Management Plan (CMP)


Carbon Management Plans are required of organisations by the government to show the intent of the organisation to reach government targets regarding carbon reduction. CMPs state the organisations current carbon emissions and should go on to identify steps the organisation will take to reach their carbon reduction goals.

Carbon Neutral


Achieving a net balance of zero carbon emissions by offsetting carbon released from the burning of fossil fuels through carbon reduction measures such as tree planting.

Carbon Offsetting


Carbon offsetting is a way of reducing the impact of unavoidable carbon emissions. E.g. A flight abroad could be offset by buying the equivalent amount of carbon credits from a project that has saved carbon dioxide.
