Clean Energy & Carbon Emissions Reduction

June 27, 2023

Carbon emissions primarily result from human activities such as burning fossil fuels, industrial processes, transportation, domestic activities, and deforestation. These emissions contribute to the greenhouse effect by trapping heat in the atmosphere and causing global warming, which negatively impacted the environment and human well-being. Reducing carbon emissions requires collective efforts and strategies aimed at cutting down carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere.

To significantly reduce carbon emissions and effectively combat climate change, a global shift to clean energy is crucial. Transitioning to clean energy alongside other approaches has proven to be a viable means of reducing the overall carbon footprint and promoting sustainability.

REAN supported by the Heinrich Boll Foundation aims to increase awareness by putting together facts on carbon emissions reduction through existing studies that focused on sustainable carbon emissions reduction approaches. To learn more, download the factsheet below.
