We hear the terms "carbon footprint," and “carbon neutrality” used endlessly by companies, universities, and even countries. But what do claims of “carbon neutrality” really mean, and can we validate these claims?
In this episode Sara covers how we can calculate our own carbon footprint - and the limitations of our ability to do so. She also explains why claims of "carbon neutrality" or "zero carbon" can often be misleading, and talks through an example of misleading advertising statements with regards to carbon zero and carbon neutrality.
