The Carbon Footprint in detail

The contributions to our carbon footprint

The figure below is taken from a European analysis of the Carbon Footprint of its citizens in 2017 (EuroStat)

Taking 400g of mixed packaging as a whole, the figure is estimated to be 4 kWh/person/day – 3% of the typical total (Cambridge University Materials)

The Circular Economy in detail

A circular economy aims to maintain the value of products, materials and resources for as long as possible by returning them into the product cycle at the end of their use, while minimising the generation of waste. The fewer products we discard, the less materials we extract, the better for our environment. (EuroStat)
