We CAN make a difference
Our Actions Matter
It's easy to think we are powerless in the face of climate change. What can we possibly do to stop a hurricane, a forest fire, a flood, or a drought?
The answer is that individual action is not only important, it is vital.
- They add up. More than half of carbon emissions are the direct result of individual behavior - in particular the cars we drive and the homes we heat.
- They spark change. When we change our behaviours and purchases, it creates demand for green products and supports the call for government leadership.
So yes, our actions matter!
We created climate change through our combined choices.
Our actions can also create a better future - great homes, in great communities, and a great country.
