Your carbon footprint
Your carbon footprint is the greenhouse gas emissions caused by an individual or an organization. It is generally expressed as the amount of carbon dioxide, or its equivalent of other greenhouse gases, that are emitted. An individual, nation or organization’s carbon footprint can be measured by undertaking a greenhouse gas emissions assessment. Once the size of a carbon footprint is known, a strategy can be developed to reduce it.
The mitigation of carbon footprints through the support of alternative projects, such as reforestation (tree planting), grasslands restoration, or the use of solar or wind energy is one way of reducing one’s carbon footprint, and is known as carbon offsetting.
ASUPCA’s Carbon Offset Program
ASUPCA offers a voluntary carbon offset program for individuals or organizations. Through ASUPCA you can voluntarily mitigate your own greenhouse gas emissions by voluntarily purchasing carbon offsets. ASUPCA members will use the revenues to reforest and naturalize their urban parks and conservation zones. Each member will report annually on what they have done in the past year, and what carbon offset projects they plan to do in the coming year.
