REDUCE: Opportunities to substantially reduce our emissions
Climate change mitigation is action to reduce sources of greenhouse gases, or to enhance the removal of these gases from the atmosphere. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, global economic and population growth continue to be the most important drivers of increases in greenhouse gas emissions, particularly from fossil fuel combustion. Without additional efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions beyond those in place today, emissions growth is expected to persist.
Mitigation strategies can be put in place across a range of sectors including transport, building and infrastructure, electricity, agriculture and industry. National, state and local governments can establish effective polices to assist in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
