Reducing Carbon Footprint: Environmental Protection with Kanetora

Updated: Apr 9

Have you ever wondered what carbon emissions are and why they play a crucial role in environmental protection? Carbon emissions have become one of the hottest global issues as we witness the adverse effects of climate change. Let's explore carbon footprint and ways to minimize it with Kanetora in the following article!

What is Carbon Footprint? Why Each of Us Needs to Reduce Our Carbon Footprint

Simply put, carbon footprint is the total amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and other greenhouse gases such as methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (NO2), and fluorinated gases (F) that we generate from our daily activities. From driving cars, using electronic devices to manufacturing and consuming goods, all contribute to increasing carbon emissions into the atmosphere. This leads to global warming and negatively impacts the environment and human health.


Calculating Carbon Footprint


To calculate the carbon footprint of an individual or an organization, various factors need to be considered such as the living area, lifestyle, type, and level of energy consumption.

For example: You use a motorcycle to travel 200km with a fuel consumption rate of 2.5 liters per 100km.

The total distance of 200km will consume: 2.5 x 2 = 5 liters of fuel.

Each liter of fuel burned emits 2.3 kg of CO2.

Calculating this journey will add 5 x 2.3 kg = 11.5 kg of CO2. This figure will contribute to your annual carbon footprint. In Vietnam, the average carbon footprint is nearly 1.18 tons per person per year.

Tools and methods have been developed to help us assess and track the amount of emissions we generate from daily activities. This helps us identify options to reduce our carbon footprint.

"Small Actions - Green Earth" Program with Kanetora

Aiming for a sustainable environment, Kanetora has launched the "Small Actions - Green Earth" program. We not only seek ways to reduce our own carbon footprint but also create a ripple effect to encourage everyone to participate. From using renewable energy to reducing waste, every small action can make a big difference for our planet.

Specifically, such as:

  • Limiting the use of disposable cups and plastic bags

  • Using electricity and water efficiently

  • Using reusable cloth bags when shopping

  • Proper waste disposal, no littering

  • Planting and caring for greenery at home and workplace

  • Prioritizing public transportation, cycling for commuting

Reducing carbon footprint is not only our responsibility to the environment but also an important step in protecting the Earth for future generations. Join the "Small Actions - Green Earth" campaign to make our planet greener and cleaner!
