Our Carbon Footprint

During the second term of the year 2020/21 we have been working in the IES Sáenz de Buruaga about the individual impact on the environment . We havve calculated our carbon footprint thanks to the CARBON FOOTPRINT CALCULATOR

After the calculation we worked in order to raise the awareness of our students about their carbon footprints and specially how to reduce them

Finally , our main goal was to compensate our Carbon Footprint planting more than 200 trees of native species as strawberry trees, holm oaks or pomegranate trees .
