My Carbon Footprint

Your individual carbon footprint comprises of the emissions embodied in the products you purchase and through the lifestyle you live. The average Australian household produces approximately 14 tonnes of greenhouse gas each year. Car use (34%) and water heating (16%) account for the largest percentage of household emissions.

Luckily, you don’t need to make major sacrifices or outlay large amounts of money to reduce your personal carbon footprint. When considering reducing your emissions, the following sources of emissions should be considered:

  • Car related carbon emissions
  • Carbon emissions from water heating, and
  • Carbon emissions from electricity & appliances.

2. Technological Changes
Emissions and costs can be reduced through measures such as installing timers, energy efficient lighting and appliances, and insulation. See our resource page for emission reduction tips.
