Air quality is the condition of the air around us,inside and outside. Natural processes and human activities both determine the quality of air. Good quality refers to clean, clear and unpolluted air. Poor air quality, however, has a negative impact not only on humans, but also on wildlife, vegetation, soil and water (Rinkesh, 2019). Poor air quality mainly occurs in cities or low-income countries, but it can be detected in rural areas and high-income countries too.

Social enterprise refers to those businesses that have specific social objectives, for example, providing employment and training for the socially disadvantaged or protecting the environment as well as providing services and products like regular businesses. However, their primary goal is not profit making (Home Affairs Department, 2016). The difference between a social enterprise idea and a traditional business idea is the motivation of the entrepreneur. The main motivation for a traditional entrepreneur is usually a desire to make money, whereas social entrepreneurs are driven by a passion to solve a social problem, and choose to use their business as a mechanism to solve these problems (The Sedge, 2018).

The ecological footprint refers to the impact of human activities on the environment. The footprint is measured in terms of the amount of biologically productive land and water needed to produce the goods humans consume and to assimilate the waste generated, including carbon emissions. In other words, it is the amount of the environment necessary to produce the goods and services necessary to support a particular lifestyle (WWF, 2019).Measuring the ecological footprint helps to understand our individual, as well as countries’, impact on the planet and helps us adjust our lifestyle and have targeted public investments.
