From the Extinction Rebellion protests and Greta Thunberg's school strikes to declining sea ice in the Arctic and plastic in our oceans, the environment and climate change are never far from the headlines.
Global warming and climate change are the consequences of a build-up of greenhouse gases, primarily carbon dioxide (CO2), in the atmosphere due to human activity.
The amount of CO2 that a company adds to the atmosphere due to its activity is called its carbon footprint.
