The Basics of Decarbonisation

Decarbonisation helps us to create more sustainable solutions to our energy needs, and shines a light on other areas of carbon dioxide and greenhouse gas production that are often overlooked.

What is Decarbonisation?

Decarbonisation is the process of reducing the levels of carbon dioxide (CO2), and other greenhouse gases associated with climate change, that are released into and damage the environment. 

How Can We Achieve Decarbonisation?

There are different ways to achieve decarbonisation, including:

  • Minimising the release of CO2 into the atmosphere:
    • Using cleaner energy by transitioning to renewable energy sources (solar, wind, hydro, etc.) and relying less on fossil fuels (coal, oil, natural gas).
    • Reducing your energy consumption by using energy efficient appliances, installing LED lights and better insulation, or simply being more conscious of your energy usage.
    • Moving towards a circular economy will reduce the amount of emissions that are released during the manufacturing process of new products and from the waste generated when products are disposed.
  • Capturing carbon from the atmosphere and storing it
    • New technologies can filter carbon from industrial site emissions, which can then be stored in more environmentally-friendly ways.
    • Sequestration occurs naturally in the environment, and we can improve this organic process through reforestation and protection of habitats.
