A carbon footprint is simply the total emissions of greenhouse gases including carbon dioxide, created by individuals or organizations. Today reducing your carbon footprint is more important than ever. And as a consumer, you can do so by ensuring you shop for products that meet the Carbon Footprint Standard. The CFS is an internationally recognised standard for demonstrating low carbon credentials. It recognises all stages of carbon management - from assessment, to carbon reductions and carbon neutrality and ensures that the organisation follows the stringent standards of carbon management. So next time you shop, shop green.
