An increase in Greenhouse Gases (GHG) due to the burning of fossil fuels, leads to drastic change in the climatic conditions also known as global warming. The carbon-dioxide (CO 2) is one of the primary and most abundant GHG which is the main reason behind the climate change. The accounting of the GHG emissions is known as Carbon Footprint. The overall purpose of the study is to develop a tool useful for evaluating and assessing the Carbon Footprint generated by garment production units and
