What is a Carbon Footprint?
Just like we leave footprints in the sand, our actions leave footprints in the environment. One of those footprints is how much carbon dioxide or CO2 is emitted by the combustion of fossil fuels to support our daily lives. Carbon Dioxide is a major component of the Greenhouse Gasses warming our planet. By being aware of our Carbon Footprint we can begin to reduce it and thereby reduce our impact on the planet.
What is Ship Carbon Footprint?
Ship Carbon Footprint is the emission of CO2 from fossil fuels during the use of your boat. These emissions primarily come from burning fuel in the engine(s).
Out of every ton burned in fuel, a vessel leaves 2,5 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.
