Learn About: Your Individual Emissions
In the home or on the road, daily activities cause emissions of greenhouse gases. Individuals can produce greenhouse gas emissions directly by burning oil or gas for home heating or indirectly by using electricity generated from fossil fuel burning.
The first step in reducing your greenhouse gas emissions is to identify how much your household emits. If you have old copies of energy bills, EPA's personal greenhouse gas emissions calculator can help estimate your household's annual emissions.
