The first step in reducing your greenhouse gas (GHGs) is understanding your carbon footprint. Individuals and families contribute to the emissions of greenhouse gasses directly or indirectly through our actions and daily living practices. The largest contributors are typically our homes (through heating and air-conditioning as well as well as electrical consumption), our cars that emit CO2 directly into the atmosphere and airplane travel.
Emissions from these sources can be calculated using our on-line calculators. The resulting total is know as your carbon footprint and is expressed in equivalent tons of CO2 (tCO2e).
To achieve a lower carbon footprint consider the following lifestyle changes :
Once you have reduced your emissions consider purchasing offsets to achieve a zero carbon footprint or Zero GHG.
