Resources

The following list contains actions that people can do to reduce their carbon dioxide emissions to help mitigating climate change. The actions are divided into four sections: energy, transport, food and water and consumption and waste. We would like you to reflect on the actions that you might already be doing and to consider doing other actions, particularly those that involve higher savings.
