How does reducing the energy consumption of my home make a difference to the issue of global climate change?

Canada is among the top 10 global emitters as a country and one of the largest per capita emitters of GHGs. While the energy consumption and greenhouse gases emitted from your home make up a tiny percentage of global greenhouse gas emissions, at a regional level, the collective GHG emissions from homes is significant. More importantly, the amount of GHG emissions you produce in your home is completely within your control to reduce. Individual and collective actions at home are part of the solution.  The Bring it Home program encourages program participants to think about what other actions they individually and collectively can take to support global efforts to tackle climate change.
