Every time we drive our vehicles and use energy in our homes, we are burning fossil fuels – such as gas, oil and coal – and sending air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions into the air. This contributes to smog and climate change.
The goal of 20/20 The Way to Clean Air is to help you reduce your energy consumption by 20 percent at home and on the road. 20 percent, or one tonne, is a fifth of what the average Canadian produces each year in greenhouse gas emissions. Reductions in these pollutants will improve local air quality and lessen the impact of smog and climate change on the environment and your health.
20/20 The Way to Clean Air Planner provides you with step-by-step tips to reduce home energy and vehicle use by taking actions that save energy without sacrificing comfort or convenience.
