The increasing threat of global warming alongside the legislative pressures to reduce carbon emissions have led to the development of clear methodologies and standards relating to the measurement and reduction of carbon footprints.
Carbon footprint Reduction
Growing concerns about global warming and climate change have forced water suppliers to focus on water production capacity and associated greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The Dynamics model of the system is being developed to measure the energy needs of water from a water source to the distribution areas of Las Vegas Valley and to analyze its associated carbon footprint.
The use of integrated power management strategies to reduce costs is not new, but has become increasingly important due to mandatory laws and reduced profit margins in many sectors. Many CPI companies have officially implemented energy management systems and are using a variety of automation and control technologies to help reduce energy costs.
The definition of the termcarbon footprint 'the amount of carbon dioxide emitted from the atmosphere as a result of the actions of an individual, organization or community.' The ultimate goal can be carbon neutral, so your carbon emissions are reduced to nothing, yet that is not a achievement. To begin with, in order to correct climate change we must first focus on waste management.
Food and Agriculture
When it comes to climate change, the focus tends to be on ‘clean energy’ solutions – the deployment of renewable or nuclear energy; improvements in energy efficiency; or transition to low-carbon transport. But the global food system, which encompasses production, and post farm processes such as processing and distribution is also a key contributor to emissions. We need a menu of solutions: changes to diets; food waste reduction; improvements in agricultural efficiency; and technologies that make low-carbon food alternatives scalable and affordable.
Transportation is now the largest source of carbon emissions.Now the personal automobile is the single greatest polluter because emissions from millions of vehicles on the road add up. To reduce greenhouse gas emissions, individuals can use cleaner modes of transportation to get around, from public transit to biking and walking.
The scientific community has been warning the world for years about the consequences of current pollution levels, and the packaging sector is no stranger to this reality. One of the most relevant indicators in this context is packaging’s carbon footprint, which allows us to calculate the environmental impact caused by its manufacture and use, in order to reduce it altogether.
