Abstract

This study calculates a carbon footprint for Tara Road in the South Durban Industrial Basin. Carbon footprints are useful for raising local awareness of the climatic implications of the goods and services that residents choose to consume core. Household participation in the calculations was sought and participation was enthusiastic. No data was obtained from the oil refinery. Such studies rely upon the availability of relevant and trustworthy information. In the context of state protection of polluting industries, public rights to sensitive information are underlined. - (AJC)
