Climate change is a growing issue for mankind and the natural environment. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions released into the atmosphere in ever rincreasing volumes are recognized to be responsible for this change. Carbon footprint quantification, analysis, and reduction are key to preventing this.  For example, by enhancing energy efficiency, mitigating carbon emissions by means of green energy, and then compensating for remaining GHG emissions by investing in carbon offsets, we can get closer to achieving our final goal of becoming carbon neutral.
