Climate Pollution: Reducing My Footprint

Climate Pollution: Reducing My Footprint

(Theme 1 – Transportation, Theme 2 – Energy, Theme 5 – Food, Theme 7 – Waste, Theme 8 – Health)

Organization: Environmental Commissioner of Ontario

Timeline for Completion: Ongoing


Ontarians have large carbon footprints. The average Ontarian personally causes about 11 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions.* More than half of the average Ontarian’s carbon footprint comes from just four activities: driving, heating our homes, flying, and eating beef. For most people, the opportunities to reduce the most emissions are in those same four activities.

Individual actions are not enough to protect our global climate, but they are a great place to start.
