The overall carbon footprint calculation of one product needs to include the emission generated from the first raw material through the entire manufacturing process. In addition to this, the returned shipments of products not wanted must be included, and in this case, the rate is higher than average compared to other periods.
The trend of carbon emission has been reduced in the previous years because of the effect at an economic level of coronavirus. However, as a society, we have the responsibility to keep decreasing these figures.
