Reducing Our Carbon Footprint: Why Now is the Time
As we settle into the new year, it's an opportune moment for each of us to examine what more we can do to reduce our personal impact on the planet.
With the goal of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050, the world's carbon budget is shrinking each year. This means every individual needs to steadily decrease their carbon footprint between now and the target date. Filling out a carbon footprint questionnaire can raise awareness and spark conversations about additional steps we might take.
The WWF Footprint Calculator is one way to estimate your environmental effect. While optional, we do not recommend including an email address when submitting your information to avoid technical issues receiving results.
Sharing this knowledge opens dialogue and ideas about what changes our community can make, whether as students, staff members, alumnae, neighbours, or other members of our school community. Now is the perfect time to help in the fight against the climate emergency.
