Take action on climate change

We are in a climate emergency and we are all called to make a difference. We are all interconnected (globally) and our actions have impacts on the whole planet. Let’s not wait for the next conference; let’s not wait for the next pledge. Let’s be part of the solution and take climate action today!

This section highlights what you can do today (and why) to act on climate (updated periodically).

Human-made carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are the main driver of climate change. The largest source of CO2 emission is the burning of fossil fuels that we use, e.g., to heat & power our houses and commercial buildings. One of the most important things you can do to reduce your energy-related emissions is to switch to 100% renewable electricity.

What if you could prevent the problem in the first place? We can reduce our energy consumption & increase energy efficiency to accelerate the clean energy transition and achieve climate and sustainability goals.

We know that road travel accounts for three-quarters of transport emissions. Most of this comes from passenger vehicles – cars and buses – contributing 45.1%. Another 29.4% comes from trucks we use to move things around. We can reduce our emissions and improve our health by changing how we move around and using sustainable transportation systems.

To understand the significance of the climate actions above (and why I have chosen them), we need to understand the sources of our emissions. Below you can find the Sankey diagram with the global GHG emissions – a key visualization on ClimateWatchdata‘s website. On the left, you see the sectors responsible for the emissions (Energy, Industrial processes, Agriculture, Land-Use change, Waste); on the right, their contribution in terms of gases, Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Methane (CH4), Nitrous Oxide (N2O), and Fluorinated gases (F-gases).
