Reducing your emissions and carbon footprint
Carbon emissions are a reality of many everyday activities. The energy we use at work and home, driving our cars, travelling, and the food we eat all produce emissions and contribute to our carbon footprints.
A carbon footprint is the amount of carbon that an individual produces. The less carbon emitted, the smaller your footprint becomes. By reducing our carbon footprints, we can actively minimise the negative impact being made on our climate and environment.
At Greenfleet, we believe that carbon emissions should be reduced as much as possible. In the transition to a low carbon economy, offsetting provides a solution for the emissions that cannot currently be avoided.
There are ways we can all reduce the carbon emissions produced as a result of how we work, live, and travel.
- Reduce car travel by taking public transport, cycling, or walking.
- Travel and holiday locally instead of flying overseas.
- Eat local produce and increase consumption of fruit and vegetables.
- Source green power at home and investigate installing solar panels.
- Minimise waste and incorporate recycling and composting practices in the household.
