Webinar series gives inside track on reducing your carbon footprint 

Have you heard about your carbon footprint but don’t know how or why it needs to be reduced?

With more and more people beginning to realise the impact that climate change is having on the planet, there have been greater efforts to find ways to reduce our carbon footprint.






Sometimes this means making sacrifices or choosing the less convenient option, but in many ways, making efforts to cut back on your emissions can lead you to make healthier and sometimes more affordable choices. 

Climate change is happening as a result of our burning of fossil fuels (like coal, oil, and gas), causing greenhouse gases to be released in our atmosphere that trap the sun’s heat and cause the planet’s temperature to rise. Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is one of the most common greenhouse gases that is released from our day to day activities.

As a result, we are increasingly facing rising seawater levels, intense storms, and rainfall, flooding, and more.

Your carbon footprint is the total amount of carbon emissions that are released into the atmosphere as a result of your individual activity. It’s also possible to look at the carbon footprint of an organisation, a community, or even a product, like your mobile phone.  

Limerick City and County Council is delighted to host “Carbon Footprint Reduction – One Step at a Time”, a Zoom webinar.

It is the latest in a series of eco-themed webinars from Limerick City and County Council marking Limerick’s designation as European Green Leaf City 2020.

The event is taking place on Thursday 25 June at 8 pm until 8.45 pm.
