    carbon footprint

    Hi,

    I would like to know what does "ports’ carbon footprint – energy and natural resource" mean in this sentence. It refers to how ports are affecting the overall carbon footprint, energy and resources? I don't really understand the "-".

    "The Carbon Positive Programme for Ports offers a comprehensive analysis of ports’ carbon footprint – energy and natural resource and will measure, manage and report CO2 emissions on an annual basis against pre-agreed targets set using Carbon Positive’s multi-criteria tools in partnership with the port authorities."

    The meaning is not clear, it is poorly written.

    Re: carbon footprint

    I guess it means how they are using energy and other natural resources- they will be big consumers of raw materials beside carbon fuels.
