We plan to have 8 content partners and are identifying them through our research.
The content partner will be one NGO / NPO from 6 continents (Oceania - Australasia, Asia, Africa, Europe, North America & South America) plus one each from India & Thane.
We know that as of now, there does not exist an NGO / NPO in Antarctica continent.
We plan to provide one free banner to 6 continent content partners. This will be either the name of the NGO or their logo and the size of each banner will be 190 px width and 30 px height.
The banner for NGO in Asia will be from countries other than India because India & Thane are our global examples and we will give a banner of 502 px x 40 px each to an NGO from India & Thane at the top of this folder.
All the 8 banners will be from now to March 2018.

A carbon footprint is historically defined as "the total set of greenhouse gas emissions caused by an [individual, event, organisation, product] expressed as carbon dioxide equivalent."

The total carbon footprint cannot be calculated because of the large amount of data required and the fact that carbon dioxide can be produced by natural occurrences. It is for this reason that Wright, Kemp, and Williams, writing in the journal Carbon Management, have suggested a more practicable definition:

A measure of the total amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) emissions of a defined population, system or activity, considering all relevant sources, sinks and storage within the spatial and temporal boundary of the population, system or activity of interest. Calculated as carbon dioxide equivalent using the relevant 100-year global warming potential (GWP100).

Greenhouse gases (GHGs) can be emitted through transport, land clearance, and the production and consumption of food, fuels, manufactured goods, materials, wood, roads, buildings, and services. For simplicity of reporting, it is often expressed in terms of the amount of carbon dioxide, or its equivalent of other GHGs, emitted.

The concept name of the carbon footprint originates from ecological footprint, discussion, which was developed by Rees and Wackernagel in the 1990s which estimates the number of "earths" that would theoretically be required if everyone on the planet consumed resources at the same level as the person calculating their ecological footprint. However, given that ecological footprints are a measure of failure, Anindita Mitra (CREA, Seattle) chose the more easily calculated "carbon footprint" to easily measure use of carbon, as an indicator of unsustainable energy use. In 2007, carbon footprint was used as a measure of carbon emissions to develop the energy plan for City of Lynnwood, Washington. Carbon footprints are much more specific than ecological footprints since they measure direct emissions of gases that cause climate change into the atmosphere.

Carbon footprint is one of a family of footprint indicators, which also includes water footprint and land footprint.
Click here to get more information from the source

It is not necessary but it will be good if the NGO content provider helps our online research by sharing relevant issue related project in their continent.
They should not give more than 100 words information.
CSRidentity.com will share the information and at the end will share the source (which is name of the relevant NGO content partner and we will link the source to the relevant NGO content provider website).
If the NGO from Asia provides information of a country in Africa continent or any other continent, we will give the NGO from Asia as the source. Which means any content partner from any continent is free to provide information from any other continent and get a link to them as source.

There are two things which we are careful
1) The project mentioned must exist.
2) We will share the project and will not name the name of the organisation which does the project. If anyone is interested, they will communicate with the source (which means our relevant content partner) and not us or the sponsor.

We dont want to dilute the identity of the sponsor of the issue.
Ideally we want the sponsor of the issue to be known for that issue across the world.
Of course, we must mention here that we will name the 8 NGO content partners on the index page of the relevant issue with link to their website.
As a responsible organisation, our editorial has a defined view on the type of NGO here. Our email id is Datacentre.
