For everyone's understanding, the carbon footprint (or CO2 footprint) represent total greenhouse emissions produced by a person, a device, a company, a factory, a machine or anything else, in a time interval.
Carbon emissions (CO2) are greenhouse gases resulting from various human activities. Coal-fired power plants that produce electricity have an important CO2 emission.
