English term or phrase: carbon footprint
Definition from AltusLumen:
Carbon footprint measures total amount of greenhouse gas emissions released into the environment. Greenhouse gas emissions from all sources are summed up and changed into units of CO2 equivalent which is used to standardize greenhouse gas emissions and help make comparisons from different time periods and across industries. Carbon emissions are usually measured in metric tons per year (1 metric ton equals 2204lbs).

Example sentence(s):
  • With rises in the costs of fuel and widespread media coverage on the threats of global warming, reducing your carbon footprint is increasingly at the forefront of the sustainability agenda for consumer product manufacturers and retailers. Carbon Footprint Consumer Products 2008
  • Global climate change is one of humanity’s greatest challenges and one of the most important indicators that we are in ecological overshoot. Since the carbon footprint is 50 percent of humanity’s overall Ecological Footprint, reducing our carbon footprint is essential to ending ecological overshoot. Global Footprint Network
  • Some companies have started to include footprints on their labeling. Carbon labels appeal to consumers who understand and monitor their own carbon footprints and want to support products that do the same. HowStuffWorks, Inc.
