1. Environmental policy - carbon footprint - construction - infrastructure.
In the context of buildings and other physical infrastructure, residual carbon is the carbon footprint remaining after all feasible methods for reducing carbon impacts have been reasonably exhausted.
A net zero carbon balance can then be achieved by purchasing offsets for the appropriate amount of residual carbon.
The amount of offsets purchased should be published.
