What is the carbon footprint?

The CO2eq is an index of the impact human activities have on the terrestrial climatic system and the consequent generation of global warming.

What is the carbon compensation?

The carbon compensation is a way of counterbalancing the emissions of greenhouse gases through the reduction of the direct or indirect reabsorption of the equivalent quantity of CO2 caused by a certain human activity.

What does “carbon neutral” mean?

Carbon-neutrality is the result of a quantification, reduction and compensation process of the CO2 emissions: to become carbon neutral means to decide taking responsibility of your own environmental impacts and choose to make your activities unimpactful to the environment.

What does “reporting the non financial aspects of the business” mean?

In Italy, the recent D.Lgs 254/16 has introduced for some categories of businesses a specific obligation for the reporting of the non financial aspects linked to the annual business activities, asking them to report in a non-economic financial report all the environmental and social activities linked to the business. The goal is to report what generally does not emerge in the annual financial report in order to better understand and communicate the negative and positive environmental and social activities of the business during the year.
