There is a growing consensus about the need to make our society and economy more sustainable. Businesses and other employers are recognised as major contributors to carbon emissions and as such need to reduce their impacts. The drive to improve sustainability in businesses typically comes from legislation, fiscal measures, market forces and internal stakeholder pressure.

This study was based on data provided by CABE to BFF and the quality of these data was medium.

The results show that the total carbon footprint in tonnes of carbon dioxide (tCO2) emissions is 420 tCO2 while the total ecological footprint in global hectares (gha) is 180 gha.
