In 2018, the United Nations (UN) published an alarming report about how current CO2 concentrations, and ongoing emissions of greenhouse gases, will result in global temperatures rising above pre-industrial levels. In particular, the UN is urging for new ways to limit global warming to below 1.5°C, which would require human-caused emissions CO2 needing to fall by 45 percent by 2030.
Thankfully, there are a wide-range of new carbon-footprint reducing solutions that have emerged that allow both consumers and businesses to take the right actions to get to “net zero.”
