The temperature of earth environment is increasing all over the world due to emission of greenhouse gases from anthropogenic sources. It has been intensified since industrial revolution. The average global temperature has been increased 0.7°C (UNFCC) since past century. If the current trend of greenhouse gases emission continues then it has been predicted that there will be 0.2°C rise will take place in the global temperature per decade. The most significant greenhouse gases identified in Kyoto protocol are CO2, CH4, N20, SF6, HFCS and PFCS. The global concern to reduce global warming has been increase and organizations, companies, universities, colleges and events etc. Started calculating their carbon footprint. It has been find out that largest contributing factor for the carbon footprint of RGSC, Mirzapur is mainly the energy consumption, because most of the energy comes from the thermal power plants.
