At Enaex, we promote environmental responsibility in all our business areas, seeking, in the first place, to comply with all the rules and regulations in force, striving to progressively increase efficiency in the use and management of natural resources.

What is the carbon footprint?

The Carbon Footprint is the total emissions of CO2 and other Greenhouse Gases (GHG) into the atmosphere generated by an individual, organization, event, or product.

These emissions are quantified according to the Greenhouse Gas Protocol’s international standard (and are expressed in metric tons ofCO2 equivalent (CO2e).

Calculating the Carbon Footprint is the first big step to know and manage the primary sources of GHG emissions of a process, obtaining a strategic tool to communicate, endorse, disseminate and multiply the exercise of environmental responsibility, adding value to the company.

The carbon footprint includes direct and indirect emissions:
