English term or phrase: Carbon footprint
Hva sier man på norsk? Noen forslag er "CO2-fotavtrykk", "CO2-avtrykk", "karbonavtrykk". "Karbonfotavtrykk" høres litt vel traurig ut syns jeg.

Andre forslag?

agree  Per Bergvall: Språkrådet kom i sin tid opp med beiken også, men her er de nok på riktig spor. Gjelder det CO2 spesielt, kan karbonavtrykk gjerne brukes for min del.
