Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions pose risks to our environment and human health because they contribute to climate change risks.
Sources of household GHG emissions include:
- electricity use, for example for heating and cooling, lighting and electrical appliances
- water use
- transport from the combustion of fuel such as petrol and diesel in passenger vehicles
- burning of gas for heating, hot water, and cooking
Businesses, governments, households and individuals all have a role to play in reducing the GHG emissions they generate. For further information on action you can take to reduce your GHG emissions, visit:
Your local council’s website.
