Find out how your carbon footprint is generated
Some of our everyday actions also contribute to greenhouse gas emissions.
1 kg of non-recycled waste generates 700 g of CO2
What produces these emissions?
Waste that is not recycled is taken to the landfill, where the organic products decay underground, generating greenhouse gases. In addition, waste is incinerated using fossil fuels, resulting in more emissions.
What actions can lower these emissions?
Separating waste to make it easier to recycle and using organic waste to create fertilizer are actions that can help reduce waste volume in landfills and reuse raw materials.
At BBVA, we have created the first personal carbon footprint calculator
