Industrialization is the route to growth and prosperity of a nation. However, environmentalists have something severely dreadful to say about it. The world is advancing indeed but, leading towards a destructive stage with the rising amount of industrial pollution. With the CO2-filled industrial smog and degradation of non-renewable energy sources, the impact of global warming is multiplying. On the contrary, decreasing the amount of industrial activities will turn into decline of the nation’s progress and thus, is a big ‘NO’.
The ideal way to fight against global warming is to implement environment-friendly practices for controlling CO2 emissions. But, before we dive more into these effective ways, let us know about the precise definition of global warming. With the increase in release of greenhouse gases, there is a steep rise in the amount of thermal and infrared radiation on the surface. This, in turn, is leading to an increase in global temperatures thereby, resulting in the phenomenon which, we term as global warming.
Following here are some helpful ways to reduce the amount of CO2 emissions thereby, combating global warming.
Federal governments of many nations have set down limits on the amount of greenhouse emissions made by industries. As for now, each company will have a certain limit on the release of greenhouse gases. They should have a permit for emission which, would actually act as a seal or cap on the level of pollution it is permitted to emit.
Measuring the level of Carbon Footprint
Assessing the total amount of carbon footprint released by the operations of an organization will help you to plan and implement new policies and evaluate how successful they are in reducing the pollution. Carbon footprint is generally measured by conducting an assessment of Greenhouse Gas Emissions. Once, the level of carbon footprint is measured, you can implement a strategy to reduce its level by initiating technological developments, carbon capture, better product and process management and change in consumption strategies.
Rewarding Green Volunteers
Start motivating the employees to opt for greener activities like using public transportation, biking, carpooling, telecommuting and various other ways to cut down the level of greenhouse gas emissions. Employees can be provided with commuter benefits which will reduce traffic congestion, address expensive or limited parking and improvement employee recruitment and retention as well.
Minimizing Energy Use
Nowadays, the building & construction industry has attained more certifications on energy efficiency. These standards helped organizations to set achievable and measurable goals for reduction of energy use. This, in turn, will help industrialists to build new buildings that are energy-efficient. Moreover, there are various rating systems which help business owners to reduce the level of energy consumption.
A Step towards Adaptation
With the increasing amount of global warming and climate change, you need to opt for sustainable choices while considering the regular activities you need to go through. Though the federal governments are taking significant initiatives, however, being an industrialist and a responsible part of the society, you must opt for environment-friendly options and promote the world as cleaner and greener.
